Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits calmodulin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including gamete generation; maintenance of centrosome location; and nervous system development. Localizes to the cytoplasm; cytoskeleton; and midbody. Used to study microcephaly. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in microcephaly; primary autosomal recessive microcephaly; primary autosomal recessive microcephaly 5; and visual epilepsy. Orthologous to human ASPM (abnormal spindle microtubule assembly).
