FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a protein containing a large tandem-repeat domain as well as additional low complexity regions. The encoded protein functions in microtubule organization, particularly in the formation and maintanance of cilia. Mutations in this gene cause Alstrom syndrome. There is a pseudogene for this gene located adjacent in the same region of chromosome 2. Alternative splice variants have been described but their full length nature has not been determined.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mice display obesity starting after puberty, hypogonadism, hyperinsulinemia, male-specific hyperglycemia, retinal dysfunction, and late-onset hearing loss. [provided by MGI curators]
