Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have metal ion binding activity and nucleic acid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cytoplasmic sequestering of protein; positive regulation of cilium assembly; and protein localization to cilium. Localizes to the ciliary transition fiber; cytoplasm; and microtubule organizing center. Is expressed in several structures, including body cavity or lining; early conceptus; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and vertebral axis musculature. Orthologous to human DZIP1 (DAZ interacting zinc finger protein 1).
