Summary
Predicted to enable GTP binding activity. Predicted to be a structural constituent of cytoskeleton. Involved in lysosome localization. Located in astral microtubule; centrosome; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including adult; embryonic/larval fat body; gonad; imaginal disc; and neuromuscular junction. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in keratoconus; lissencephaly; lissencephaly 3; microcephaly; and visual epilepsy. Orthologous to several human genes including TUBA3D (tubulin alpha 3d).
