Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits microtubule binding activity. Involved in several processes, including photoreceptor cell development; photoreceptor cell maintenance; and positive regulation of non-motile cilium assembly. Localizes to the cilium; cytoskeleton; and photoreceptor inner segment. Used to study retinitis pigmentosa 1. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa 1. Orthologous to human RP1 (RP1 axonemal microtubule associated).
