Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Involved in sperm axoneme assembly and sperm flagellum movement involved in flagellated sperm motility. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm; cytoskeleton; and motile cilium. Is expressed in lateral ventricle choroid plexus and metencephalon part of 4th ventricle choroid plexus. Used to study spermatogenic failure 19. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in normal pressure hydrocephalus and spermatogenic failure 19. Orthologous to human CFAP43 (cilia and flagella associated protein 43).
