Acts upstream of or within aorta development; coronary vasculature development; and ventricular septum development. Predicted to be located in centrosome; nuclear membrane; and nucleoplasm. Predicted to be part of dynactin complex. Is expressed in cervical ganglion; cervico-thoracic ganglion; dorsal root ganglion; glossopharyngeal ganglion; and trigeminal ganglion. Orthologous to human DCTN5 (dynactin subunit 5). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
Ubiquitous expression in whole brain E14.5 (RPKM 35.2), CNS E18 (RPKM 35.1) and 28 other tissues See more

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
