Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Predicted to enable actin binding activity; microtubule binding activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including establishment of monopolar cell polarity; mitochondrion transport along microtubule; and neuron projection development. Located in several cellular components, including neuronal cell body; photoreceptor outer segment; and postsynaptic density. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; genitourinary system; intestine smooth muscle circular layer; nose; and trigeminal nerve. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness and periventricular nodular heterotopia. Orthologous to human MAP1B (microtubule associated protein 1B).
