General annotation (Comments)

Function

Involved in regulating cell migration through association with the actin cytoskeleton By similarity. Has an essential role in the maintenance of Z line and sarcomere integrity By similarity. UniProtKB Q0ZGT2

Subunit structure

Interacts with F-actin. Ref.1

Subcellular location

Cytoplasmcytoskeleton. Cell junctionadherens junction. CytoplasmmyofibrilsarcomereZ line. Note: Localizes to the cell-matrix AJ. Not found at the cell-cell AJ. Ref.1 Ref.2

Tissue specificity

Expressed in brain, testis, spleen and fibroblasts (at protein level). Not detected in liver, kidney or epithelial cells (at protein level). Ref.1

Sequence similarities

Contains 1 Ig-like (immunoglobulin-like) domain.

Alternative products

This entry describes 2 isoforms produced by alternative splicing. [Align] [Select]
Isoform 1 Ref.1 (identifier: Q9Z2J4-1)

Also known as: b-Nexilin;

This isoform has been chosen as the 'canonical' sequence. All positional information in this entry refers to it. This is also the sequence that appears in the downloadable versions of the entry.
Isoform 2 Ref.1 (identifier: Q9Z2J4-2)

Also known as: s-Nexilin;

The sequence of this isoform differs from the canonical sequence as follows:
     11-74: Missing.
     148-148: Q → QIEDINNTGTESASE
