The protein encoded by this gene serves to anchor phosphodiesterase 4D to the Golgi/centrosome region of the cell. Defects in this gene may be a cause of myeloproliferative disorder (MBD) associated with eosinophilia. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Functions as an anchor sequestering components of the cAMP-dependent pathway to Golgi and/or centrosomes (By similarity).
Participates in microtubule dynamics, promoting microtubule assembly. Depending upon the cell context, may act at the level of the Golgi apparatus or that of the centrosome (PubMed:25217626, PubMed:27666745, PubMed:28814570, PubMed:29162697). In complex with AKAP9, recruits CAMSAP2 to the Golgi apparatus and tethers non-centrosomal minus-end microtubules to the Golgi, an important step for polarized cell movement (PubMed:27666745, PubMed:28814570). In complex with AKAP9, EB1/MAPRE1 and CDK5RAP2, contributes to microtubules nucleation and extension from the centrosome to the cell periphery, a crucial process for directed cell migration, mitotic spindle orientation and cell-cycle progression (PubMed:29162697).
