Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits identical protein binding activity and microtubule binding activity. Involved in microtubule cytoskeleton organization; nervous system development; and vesicle transport along microtubule. Localizes to spindle pole centrosome and synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including body cavity or lining; brain ventricular layer; early conceptus; integumental system; and vertebral axis musculature. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lissencephaly. Orthologous to human NDE1 (nudE neurodevelopment protein 1).
