The human ABLIM3 gene encodes the protein Actin-binding LIM protein 3.[1]

The LIM domain is a double zinc finger structure that promotes protein-protein interactions. LIM domain proteins, such as ABLIM3, play roles in embryonic development, cell lineage determination, and cancer.[2]

Diseases associated with ABLIM3 include hepatoblastoma, and among its related super-pathways are axon guidance and DCC mediated attractive signaling. An important paralog of this gene is LIMS1.
