Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits alpha-tubulin binding activity and gamma-tubulin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including embryonic body morphogenesis; epithelial cilium movement involved in determination of left/right asymmetry; and negative regulation of fibroblast growth factor receptor signaling pathway involved in neural plate anterior/posterior pattern formation. Localizes to centriolar satellite; centriole; and ciliary basal body. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system epithelium; brain; reproductive system; sensory organ; and skin. Used to study orofaciodigital syndrome I. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Joubert syndrome 10; Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome type 2; orofaciodigital syndrome I; retinitis pigmentosa; and retinitis pigmentosa 23. Orthologous to human OFD1 (OFD1 centriole and centriolar satellite protein).
