Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to be involved in cilium assembly. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including cytosol; microtubule organizing center; and non-motile cilium. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hydrolethalus syndrome 1. Orthologous to human HYLS1 (HYLS1 centriolar and ciliogenesis associated).
