Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have GTP binding activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in meiotic spindle organization. Localizes to several cellular components, including the condensed nuclear chromosome; microtubule cytoskeleton; and non-motile cilium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in complex cortical dysplasia with other brain malformations 4; inclusion body myositis; and muscular disease. Is expressed in heart; neural retina; respiratory system; and spermatozoon. Orthologous to human TUBG1 (tubulin gamma 1).
