Previous GeneCards Identifiers for KPTN Gene
This gene encodes a filamentous-actin-associated protein, which is involved in actin dynamics and plays an important role in neuromorphogenesis. Mutations in this gene result in recessive mental retardation-41. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]
