In adult striated muscle they form a fibrous network connecting myofibrils to each other and to the plasma membrane in the periphery of the Z-line structures (PubMed:24200904, PubMed:25394388, PubMed:26724190). May act as a sarcomeric microtubule-anchoring protein: specifically associates with detyrosinated tubulin-alpha chains, leading to buckled microtubules and mechanical resistance to contraction.

Cytoplasm, myofibril, sarcomere, Z line. Cytoplasm. Cell membrane, sarcolemma. Nucleus. Localizes in the intercalated disks which occur at the Z line of cardiomyocytes (PubMed:24200904, PubMed:26724190). Localizes in the nucleus exclusively in differentiating cardiac progenitor cells and premature cardiomyocytes (By similarity).
