actin-binding regulatory subunit of protein phosphatase 1 (PP1). The actin-binding domain of spinophilin is necessary and sufficient for targeting of spinophilin to dendrites and dendritic spines. May play a role in establishing a signaling complex for dopaminergic neurotransmission through D2 receptors by linking receptors downstream signaling molecules and the actin cytoskeleton. Interacts with p14-ARF. Contains one PDZ/DHR domain. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
