Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to enable dynein intermediate chain binding activity; dynein light intermediate chain binding activity; and minus-end-directed microtubule motor activity. Predicted to be involved in cilium movement and outer dynein arm assembly. Predicted to be located in sperm flagellum. Predicted to be part of outer dynein arm. Predicted to be active in axoneme and motile cilium. Used to study spermatogenic failure 39. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spermatogenic failure 39. Orthologous to human DNAH17 (dynein axonemal heavy chain 17).
