USH1C iso5 Anchoring/scaffolding protein that is a part of the functional network formed by USH1C, USH1G, CDH23 and MYO7A that mediates mechanotransduction in cochlear hair cells. Required for normal development and maintenance of cochlear hair cell bundles. As part of the intermicrovillar adhesion complex/IMAC plays a role in brush border differentiation, controlling microvilli organization and length. Probably plays a central regulatory role in the assembly of the complex, recruiting CDHR2, CDHR5 and MYO7B to the microvilli tips. Expressed in small intestine, colon, kidney, eye and weakly in pancreas. Expressed also in vestibule of the inner ear. 5 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
