Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits microtubule binding activity; phosphoprotein binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including establishment of planar polarity; nervous system development; and transport along microtubule. Localizes to several cellular components, including the microtubule cytoskeleton; perinuclear region of cytoplasm; and stereocilium. Colocalizes with the cell leading edge. Used to study Miller-Dieker lissencephaly syndrome and lissencephaly. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lissencephaly. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PAFAH1B1 (platelet activating factor acetylhydrolase 1b regulatory subunit 1).
