a microtubule-associated protein of the RP/EB family. Binds to the APC protein which is often mutated in familial and sporadic forms of colorectal cancer. Localizes to microtubules, especially the growing ends, in interphase cells. Associates with the centrosomes and spindle microtubules during mitosis. Also associates with components of the dynactin complex and the intermediate chain of cytoplasmic dynein. May be involved in the regulation of microtubule structures and chromosome stability.
