Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables gamma-tubulin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including Arp2/3 complex-mediated actin nucleation; meiotic nuclear division; and negative regulation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including low-density lipoprotein particle clearance; positive regulation of cholesterol import; and positive regulation of protein localization to cell surface. Located in autophagosome; centrosome; and endosome. Part of BLOC-1 complex and WASH complex. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; heart; liver; lung; and spleen. Orthologous to several human genes including WASHC1 (WASH complex subunit 1).
