Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have chaperone binding activity and unfolded protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in axonemal central apparatus assembly and chaperone cofactor-dependent protein refolding. Localizes to the axoneme and sperm connecting piece. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 34. Is expressed in several structures, including brain ventricle and choroid plexus; ventricular layer; and white fat. Orthologous to human DNAJB13 (DnaJ heat shock protein family (Hsp40) member B13).
