Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have dynein intermediate chain binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cilium movement; inner dynein arm assembly; and outer dynein arm assembly. Localizes to cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; heart; liver; lung; and spleen. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia 18. Orthologous to human DNAAF5 (dynein axonemal assembly factor 5).
