Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Predicted to enable actin filament binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cardiac muscle thin filament assembly. Predicted to act upstream of or within regulation of actin filament length and sarcomere organization. Located in Z disc. Is expressed in hindlimb muscle; palatal shelf; and trunk dermomyotome. Used to study nemaline myopathy 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in arthrogryposis multiplex congenita-6 and nemaline myopathy 2. Orthologous to human NEB (nebulin).
