Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Predicted to enable dynein intermediate chain binding activity; dynein light intermediate chain binding activity; and minus-end-directed microtubule motor activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including cardiac septum morphogenesis; determination of left/right symmetry; and flagellated sperm motility. Located in 9+0 motile cilium; 9+2 motile cilium; and proximal portion of axoneme. Is expressed in several structures, including future brain; node; respiratory system; and secondary heart field. Used to study Kartagener syndrome; atrioventricular septal defect; primary ciliary dyskinesia 7; and visceral heterotaxy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Kartagener syndrome and primary ciliary dyskinesia 7. Orthologous to human DNAH11 (dynein axonemal heavy chain 11).
