Alters PTPRF cellular localization and induces PTPRF clustering. May regulate the disassembly of focal adhesions. May localize receptor-like tyrosine phosphatases type 2A at specific sites on the plasma membrane, possibly regulating their interaction with the extracellular environment and their association with substrates.
Expressed only in brain.
Belongs to the liprin family. Liprin-alpha subfamily. Contains 3 SAM (sterile alpha motif) domains.
The N-terminal coiled coil regions mediate homodimerization preferentially and heterodimerization type alpha/alpha. The C-terminal, non-coiled coil regions mediate heterodimerization type alpha/beta and interaction with PTPRD, PTPRF and PTPRS.
Cytoplasm. Cell surface. Colocalizes with PTPRF at the cell surface.
