Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to be involved in attachment of spindle microtubules to kinetochore; negative regulation of phosphatase activity; and protein localization to kinetochore. Predicted to localize to acrosomal vesicle; condensed chromosome kinetochore; and nuclear body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary autosomal recessive microcephaly and primary autosomal recessive microcephaly 4. Is expressed in telencephalon ventricular layer. Orthologous to human KNL1 (kinetochore scaffold 1).
