Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.4.0)
Predicted to be involved in attachment of spindle microtubules to kinetochore and protein localization to kinetochore. Predicted to act upstream of or within chromosome segregation. Predicted to be located in acrosomal vesicle; kinetochore; and nuclear body. Predicted to be active in nucleus. Is expressed in telencephalon and telencephalon ventricular layer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary autosomal recessive microcephaly; primary autosomal recessive microcephaly 4; and sarcoma. Orthologous to human KNL1 (kinetochore scaffold 1).
