Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Is predicted to enable identical protein binding activity and microtubule binding activity. Involved in cilium assembly and positive regulation of protein acetylation. Acts upstream of or within cilium organization. Located in microtubule organizing center; photoreceptor connecting cilium; and photoreceptor inner segment. Predicted to colocalize with cilium. Is expressed in several structures, including aorta; brain; eye; reproductive system; and respiratory system. Used to study retinitis pigmentosa 28. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa 28. Orthologous to human FAM161A (FAM161 centrosomal protein A).
