Gene: Espn (espin) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Espn
Name: espin
CRRD ID: 620652
Description: Exhibits SH3 domain binding activity and actin filament binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including microvillar actin bundle assembly; negative regulation of cytoskeleton organization; and positive regulation of filopodium assembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including brush border; filamentous actin; and microvillus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 36. Orthologous to human ESPN (espin); PARTICIPATES IN auditory mechanotransduction pathway; INTERACTS WITH acrylamide; ammonium chloride; bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: actin cytoskeletal regulatory protein; ectoplasmic specialization protein; Je; Jerker deafness locus; Jerker, deafness locus
