Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have ATP-dependent microtubule motor activity, minus-end-directed; dynein intermediate chain binding activity; and dynein light intermediate chain binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cilium movement and outer dynein arm assembly. Predicted to localize to outer dynein arm and sperm flagellum. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in male infertility. Orthologous to human DNAH17 (dynein axonemal heavy chain 17).
