Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; embryonic digit morphogenesis; and protein localization to ciliary transition zone. Localizes to the ciliary transition zone. Used to study Joubert syndrome 17. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Joubert syndrome 17 and Joubert syndrome with orofaciodigital defect. Orthologous to human CPLANE1 (ciliogenesis and planar polarity effector 1).
