Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have RNA polymerase II repressing transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including brain development; cilium assembly; and regulation of growth. Localizes to several cellular components, including the BBSome; microvillus; and stereocilium. Used to study Bardet-Biedl syndrome 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Bardet-Biedl syndrome; Bardet-Biedl syndrome 2; obesity; and retinitis pigmentosa 74. Is expressed in central nervous system; early embryo; and retina. Orthologous to human BBS2 (Bardet-Biedl syndrome 2).
