Clone numberMAC 155
FunctionKey component in the assembly and functioning of adult and embryonic striated muscles and muscle tendons. By providing connections at the level of individual microfilaments, it contributes to the fine balance of forces between the two halves of the sarcomere. The size and extensibility of the cross-links are the main determinants of sarcomere extensibility properties of muscle. In non-muscle cells, seems to play a role in chromosome condensation and chromosome segregation during mitosis. Might link the lamina network to chromatin or nuclear actin, or both during interphase.
Tissue specificityExpressed in the mesoderm at stage 11, several hours before myoblast fusion, and persists in most muscle cells, somatic, visceral and pharyngeal muscles and their precursors, until the third instar. Also expressed in adult flight muscle Z-disks.

Contains 7 fibronectin type-III domains.
Contains 53 Ig-like (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
Contains 1 SH3 domain.
Contains 7 TPR repeats.
Developmental stageExpressed both maternally and zygotically.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Chromosome. Uniformly distributed along condensed mitotic chromosomes.
