Participates in the connection between ECM adhesion sites and the actin cytoskeleton and also in the orchestration of actin assembly and cell shape modulation. Recruits migfilin (FBLP1) protein to cell-ECM focal adhesion sites. Belongs to the kindlin family. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
