Predicted to have ATP-dependent microtubule motor activity, minus-end-directed; dynein intermediate chain binding activity; and dynein light intermediate chain binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cilium movement. Localizes to outer dynein arm. Is expressed in central nervous system and testis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 40. Orthologous to human DNAH9 (dynein axonemal heavy chain 9).
