From NCBI Gene:
This protein encoded by this gene belongs to the WD repeat-containing family of proteins, which function in the formation of protein-protein complexes in a variety of biological pathways. This family member appears to function in the determination of mean platelet volume (MPV), and polymorphisms in this gene have been associated with variance in MPV. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]
Involved in spermatozoa motility (PubMed:30122540, PubMed:30122541). May also regulate cilium motility through its role in the assembly of the axonemal radial spokes (By similarity).
