Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.4.0)
Predicted to enable several functions, including Hsp70 protein binding activity; kinesin binding activity; and mitogen-activated protein kinase binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including anterograde dendritic transport of messenger ribonucleoprotein complex; positive regulation of long-term synaptic depression; and positive regulation of nervous system development. Predicted to be located in several cellular components, including cytoplasmic stress granule; dendritic shaft; and nuclear membrane. Predicted to be part of messenger ribonucleoprotein complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; olfactory epithelium; retina; submandibular gland primordium; and tooth. Orthologous to human STAU2 (staufen double-stranded RNA binding protein 2).
