Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits actin filament binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of skeletal muscle tissue development; regulation of generation of precursor metabolites and energy; and regulation of muscle system process. Localizes to Z disc and brush border. Is expressed in several structures, including autopod; skeletal musculature; testis; trunk myotome; and upper jaw incisor. Orthologous to human ACTN3 (actinin alpha 3).
