Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable beta-catenin binding activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in cardiac muscle cell differentiation and fat cell differentiation. Acts upstream of or within cilium assembly; floor plate development; and negative regulation of canonical Wnt signaling pathway. Located in centriole and ciliary basal body. Is expressed in heart; liver; lung; and olfactory epithelium. Used to study otitis media and primary ciliary dyskinesia. Orthologous to human CBY1 (chibby family member 1, beta catenin antagonist).
