Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to be a structural constituent of nuclear pore. Involved in nervous system development; paraxial mesoderm development; and somite development. Localizes to nuclear pore. Predicted to colocalize with condensed chromosome outer kinetochore. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Galloway-Mowat syndrome and nephrotic syndrome type 18. Is expressed in several structures, including epiblast; nervous system; and paraxial mesenchyme. Orthologous to human NUP133 (nucleoporin 133).
