Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have GTP binding activity and calcium ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in microtubule cytoskeleton organization; mitotic cell cycle; and negative regulation of microtubule polymerization. Localizes to several cellular components, including internode region of axon; myelin sheath; and neuronal cell body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypomyelinating leukodystrophy 6 and torsion dystonia 4. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human TUBB4A (tubulin beta 4A class IVa).
