Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Predicted to have metal ion binding activity and nucleic acid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including ciliary transition zone assembly; neural tube development; and protein localization to cilium. Localizes to axoneme; centriole; and ciliary basal body. Is expressed in olfactory epithelium. Used to study autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in polycystic kidney disease 5. Orthologous to human DZIP1L (DAZ interacting zinc finger protein 1 like).
