Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cell surface receptor signaling pathway; and regionalization. Localizes to the cilium; intraciliary transport particle B; and sperm cytoplasmic droplet. Used to study VACTERL association and atrioventricular septal defect. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa 71 and short-rib thoracic dysplasia 10 with or without polydactyly. Orthologous to human IFT172 (intraflagellar transport 172).
