Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Predicted to enable phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase binding activity. Involved in lateral motor column neuron migration and ventral spinal cord development. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including adult walking behavior; negative regulation of neurogenesis; and nervous system development. Located in perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; limb; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spinocerebellar ataxia type 37. Orthologous to human DAB1 (DAB adaptor protein 1).
