Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.1.1)
Enables dynein complex binding activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in cytoskeleton organization; spindle localization; and telomere localization. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including double-strand break repair via homologous recombination; homologous chromosome segregation; and spermatogenesis. Located in chromosome; meiotic spindle pole; and nuclear outer membrane. Part of meiotic nuclear membrane microtubule tethering complex. Is expressed in spermatocyte. Orthologous to human KASH5 (KASH domain containing 5).
