Could have a dual role in dynein targeting and in ACTR1A/Arp1 subunit of dynactin pointed-end capping. Could be involved in ACTR1A pointed-end binding and in additional roles in linking dynein and dynactin to the cortical cytoskeleton.
Belongs to the dynactin subunit 4 family.
Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Has a punctate cytoplasmic distribution as well as centrosomal distribution typical of dynactin. Overexpression does not disrupt microtubule organization or the integrity of the Golgi but does cause both cytosolic and nuclear distribution, suggesting that this polypeptide may be targeted to the nucleus at very high expression levels.
