Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits diazepam binding activity and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including carboxylic acid metabolic process; positive regulation of cilium assembly; and transport along microtubule. Localizes to several cellular components, including centriole; glutamatergic synapse; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Used to study Huntington's disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; olfactory epithelium; peripheral nervous system; retina; and testis. Orthologous to human HTT (huntingtin).
