Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Predicted to enable tropomyosin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in actin cytoskeleton organization; muscle contraction; and positive regulation of actin filament polymerization. Predicted to be located in actin filament; cytosol; and sarcomere. Predicted to be active in striated muscle thin filament. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; cochlea; genitourinary system; gut; and musculature. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in megacystis-microcolon-intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome. Orthologous to human LMOD1 (leiomodin 1).
