Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Involved in cellular response to leukemia inhibitory factor and cilium assembly. Localizes to cytoskeleton and intraciliary transport particle A. Is expressed in several structures, including choroid plexus; limb mesenchyme; lobar bronchus epithelium; metanephros; and sensory organ. Used to study short-rib thoracic dysplasia 7 with or without polydactyly. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Ellis-Van Creveld syndrome; Sensenbrenner syndrome; and short-rib thoracic dysplasia 7 with or without polydactyly. Orthologous to human WDR35 (WD repeat domain 35).
