Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have RNA polymerase II repressing transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including growth; negative regulation of GTPase activity; and nervous system development. Localizes to the BBSome; membrane; and photoreceptor connecting cilium. Used to study Bardet-Biedl syndrome 8. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Bardet-Biedl syndrome; Bardet-Biedl syndrome 8; and retinitis pigmentosa 51. Is expressed in sensory organ; spermatid; and telencephalon. Orthologous to human TTC8 (tetratricopeptide repeat domain 8).
