Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable calmodulin binding activity and molecular adaptor activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including embryonic organ development; mitotic spindle organization; and nervous system development. Located in several cellular components, including cis-Golgi network; intercellular bridge; and microtubule organizing center. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Used to study microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II. Orthologous to human PCNT (pericentrin).
