Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Involved in several processes, including epithelial cilium movement involved in extracellular fluid movement; flagellated sperm motility; and outer dynein arm assembly. Localizes to centriole and ciliary basal body. Is expressed in node and trachea. Used to study Kartagener syndrome and primary ciliary dyskinesia 30. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 30. Orthologous to human ODAD3 (outer dynein arm docking complex subunit 3).
