Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable dynein intermediate chain binding activity; dynein light intermediate chain binding activity; and minus-end-directed microtubule motor activity. Acts upstream of or within cerebrospinal fluid circulation; establishment of localization in cell; and mucociliary clearance. Located in 9+2 motile cilium and distal portion of axoneme. Part of 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).
