May function as a linker between cadherin adhesion receptors and the cytoskeleton to regulate cell-cell adhesion and differentiation in the nervous system. Regulates morphological plasticity of synapses and cerebellar and hippocampal lamination during development. Functions in the control of startle modulation. Interacts with ZNF639. Belongs to the vinculin/alpha-catenin family. 6 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Cancer Testis Antigen (CTA); Cytoskeletal; Motility/polarity/chemotaxis
