Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have zinc ion binding activity. Involved in neuron projection morphogenesis; regulation of neuron migration; and striatal medium spiny neuron differentiation. Localizes to stereocilium. Is expressed in several structures, including forebrain; hair outer root sheath; jaw; midbrain mantle layer; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acromelic frontonasal dysostosis. Orthologous to human ZSWIM6 (zinc finger SWIM-type containing 6).
