Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Involved in inner ear morphogenesis; inner ear receptor cell stereocilium organization; and sensory perception of sound. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytoskeleton; photoreceptor connecting cilium; and photoreceptor inner segment. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; eye; hemolymphoid system gland; inner ear; and testis. Used to study Usher syndrome type 1G. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Usher syndrome type 1G. Orthologous to human USH1G (USH1 protein network component sans).
