Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have actin filament binding activity; protein heterodimerization activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in actin filament organization and muscle contraction. Predicted to localize to actin filament. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; lateral plate mesoderm; musculature; retina; and urinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in distal arthrogryposis type 1A and nemaline myopathy 4. Orthologous to human TPM2 (tropomyosin 2).
