Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to be involved in several processes, including regulation of Notch signaling pathway; sensory perception of sound; and tooth mineralization. Localizes to cell surface; ciliary membrane; and stereocilium. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; gut; nervous system; sensory organ; and tooth. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 98 and ectodermal dysplasia 14. Orthologous to human TSPEAR (thrombospondin type laminin G domain and EAR repeats).
