Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables molecular adaptor activity and protein folding chaperone. Involved in inner dynein arm assembly; outer dynein arm assembly; and positive regulation of motile cilium assembly. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including cilium movement; motile cilium assembly; and protein localization to cilium. Located in apical plasma membrane and cytoplasm. Is expressed in bronchiole epithelium; lung; lung epithelium; nasal cavity epithelium; and nasal cavity respiratory epithelium. Used to study primary ciliary dyskinesia 22. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 22. Orthologous to human ZMYND10 (zinc finger MYND-type containing 10).
