plays a role in adhesion by participating, along with E-cadherin and catenin, in the organization of homotypic, interneuronal and heterotypic cell-cell adherens junctions (AJs). Essential for the association of nectin and E-cadherin. Contains 1 forkhead-associated (FHA) domain, a phosphopeptide recognition domain; 1 dilute (DIL) domain, a myosin-like domain which may play a functional role in cellular processes or vectorial vesicle transport; 1 PDZ domain, which frequently binds the carboxyl-terminal sequences of proteins or phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate in the plasma membrane; and 2 RA domains, which are associated with RasGTP effector activity. Five alternatively spliced isoforms have been described. Isoform 2 does not interact with F-actin. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
