Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to enable dynein intermediate chain binding activity; dynein light intermediate chain binding activity; and minus-end-directed microtubule motor activity. Acts upstream of or within epithelial cilium movement involved in extracellular fluid movement and flagellated sperm motility. Located in sperm flagellum. Is expressed in cerebellum; choroid plexus; and lateral ventricle choroid plexus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 37 and spermatogenic failure 18. Orthologous to human DNAH1 (dynein axonemal heavy chain 1).
