Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have alpha-tubulin binding activity and dynein heavy chain binding activity. Predicted to be involved in outer dynein arm assembly. Predicted to localize to outer dynein arm. Is expressed in brain ependyma; node; and upper respiratory tract epithelium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 16. Orthologous to human DNAL1 (dynein axonemal light chain 1).
