Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
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. Predicted to localize to the 9+2 motile cilium; distal portion of axoneme; and dynein complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia. Is expressed in central nervous system and testis. Orthologous to human DNAH9 (dynein axonemal heavy chain 9).
