It participates in the regulation of both adhesion and cell morphology and cancer progression. It functions as an anti-adherent molecule that keeps an open filtration pathway between neighbouring foot processes in the podocyte by charge repulsion. It acts as a pro-adhesive molecule, enhancing cell adherence to immobilized ligands, increasing the rate of migration and cell-cell contacts in an integrin-dependent manner. Induces actin-dependent apical microvilli formation.

It participates in the formation of a preapical plasma membrane subdomain to establish initial epithelial polarization and formation of the apical lumen during renal tubulogenesis. It plays a role in cancer development and aggressiveness by inducing cell migration and invasion through its interaction with the actin-binding protein EZR. It affects EZR-dependent signalling events, leading to increased activities of MAPK and PI3K pathways in cancer cells.
