Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Involved in several processes, including cerebrospinal fluid circulation; establishment of left/right asymmetry; and inner dynein arm assembly. Localizes to the 9+2 motile cilium and cytosol. Used to study Kartagener syndrome; hydrocephalus; primary ciliary dyskinesia 14; and visceral heterotaxy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 14. Orthologous to human CCDC39 (coiled-coil domain containing 39).
