Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including ATP-dependent microtubule motor activity, minus-end-directed; dynein intermediate chain binding activity; and dynein light chain binding activity. Involved in cilium movement involved in cell motility; epithelial cilium movement involved in extracellular fluid movement; and flagellated sperm motility. Localizes to the sperm flagellum. 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).
