may be involved in regulating neuroblast cortical polarity, cell size asymmetry and mitotic spindle asymmetry. A neoplastic tumor suppressor genes in Drosophila melanogaster. May play a role in the suppression of mammalian tumorigenesis. Gene ablation in the mouse causes severe neural tube defects. May be implicated in the etiology of human NTDs. Involved in the regulation of synaptic plasticity and synaptic vesicle dynamics. May be required to sustain synaptic vesicle concentrations at their sites of release. Targeted for ubiquitin-mediated degradation by the HPV E6 oncoprotein. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Cell adhesion; Motility/polarity/chemotaxis
