Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have GTP binding activity. Involved in several processes, including protein localization to non-motile cilium; protein transport from ciliary membrane to plasma membrane; and retina layer formation. Localizes to the cytosol and membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Bardet-Biedl syndrome; Bardet-Biedl syndrome 1; Bardet-Biedl syndrome 3; and retinitis pigmentosa 55. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; chondrocranium; embryo endoderm; limb; and node. Orthologous to human ARL6 (ADP ribosylation factor like GTPase 6).
