Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have dynein complex binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cilium assembly; determination of left/right symmetry; and regulation of cilium beat frequency. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including axoneme; cytosol; and nuclear speck. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; liver; node; nose; and spleen. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 13. Orthologous to human DNAAF1 (dynein axonemal assembly factor 1).
