Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to be involved in microtubule cytoskeleton organization; nervous system development; and neuronal stem cell population maintenance. Predicted to localize to cytosol; microtubule cytoskeleton; and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; future brain; limb bud; nasal process; and trunk somite. Used to study primary autosomal recessive microcephaly 2 with or without cortical malformations and visceral heterotaxy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in intellectual disability; primary autosomal recessive microcephaly; and primary autosomal recessive microcephaly 2 with or without cortical malformations. Orthologous to human WDR62 (WD repeat domain 62).
