Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including dynactin binding activity; dynein complex binding activity; and dynein light intermediate chain binding activity. Involved in several processes, including microtubule anchoring at microtubule organizing center; minus-end-directed organelle transport along microtubule; and protein localization to Golgi apparatus. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus and cytoplasmic vesicle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spinal muscular atrophy. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; dorsal root ganglion; olfactory epithelium; and retina. Orthologous to human BICD2 (BICD cargo adaptor 2).
