Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits intraciliary transport particle B binding activity and microtubule binding activity. Involved in several processes, including chordate embryonic development; microtubule cytoskeleton organization; and plasma membrane bounded cell projection organization. Localizes to microtubule cytoskeleton; motile cilium; and photoreceptor connecting cilium. Predicted to colocalize with ribbon synapse and spindle microtubule. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; gonad; liver; node; and spleen. Used to study dysostosis and polycystic kidney disease 1. Orthologous to human KIF3A (kinesin family member 3A).
