Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein homodimerization activity. Involved in inner ear morphogenesis; inner ear receptor cell stereocilium organization; and sensory perception of sound. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cilium; cytoskeleton; and photoreceptor inner segment. 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).
