Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to contribute to ATP-dependent microtubule motor activity, minus-end-directed. Involved in cilium assembly and determination of left/right symmetry. Localizes to apical part of cell; axoneme; and motile cilium. Colocalizes with intraciliary transport particle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy. Is expressed in embryo; gut; heart; and node. Orthologous to human DYNC2LI1 (dynein cytoplasmic 2 light intermediate chain 1).
