Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to ATP-dependent microtubule motor activity, plus-end-directed. Predicted to be involved in cilium movement; determination of left/right symmetry; and outer dynein arm assembly. Localizes to the external side of plasma membrane. Used to study Kartagener syndrome and primary ciliary dyskinesia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 9. Is expressed in spermatozoon and testis. Orthologous to human DNAI2 (dynein axonemal intermediate chain 2).
