Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have ATP binding activity and ligase activity. Involved in fertilization; protein polyglutamylation; and sperm axoneme assembly. Localizes to the cilium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cone-rod dystrophy 19. Is expressed in choroid invagination; diencephalon roof plate; medulla oblongata part of 4th ventricle choroid plexus; and metencephalon part of 4th ventricle choroid plexus. Orthologous to human TTLL5 (tubulin tyrosine ligase like 5).
