Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Involved in several processes, including axonemal central apparatus assembly; trachea development; and ventricular system development. Localizes to axonemal central pair projection. Is expressed in choroid invagination; diencephalon roof plate; medulla oblongata part of 4th ventricle choroid plexus; and metencephalon part of 4th ventricle choroid plexus. Used to study hydrocephalus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 5. Orthologous to human HYDIN (HYDIN axonemal central pair apparatus protein).
