Is predicted to encode a protein with the following domains: 14-3-3 protein; 14-3-3 protein; 14-3-3 domain; and 14-3-3 domain superfamily. Is an ortholog of C. elegans M117.3 and par-5
. In C. elegans, par-5
Is involved in several processes, including asymmetric protein localization involved in cell fate determination; first cell cycle pseudocleavage; and polarity specification of anterior/posterior axis.
