Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits dynein light intermediate chain binding activity. Involved in cytoplasmic mRNA processing body assembly; positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis; and stress granule assembly. Localizes to the cytoplasm and filopodium. Used to study Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease axonal type 2O. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease axonal type 2O; autosomal dominant non-syndromic intellectual disability 13; and spinal muscular atrophy. Orthologous to human DYNC1H1 (dynein cytoplasmic 1 heavy chain 1).
