Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
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. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; olfactory epithelium; peripheral nervous system; retina; and testis. Used to study Huntington's disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease. Orthologous to human HTT (huntingtin).
