    • Self-associates. Interacts (via SAM domain) with BICC1 (via KH domains) in an RNA-dependent manner (By similarity). Central component of a complex containing at least ANKS6, INVS, NEK8 and NPHP3 (PubMed:23793029). ANKS6 may organize complex assembly by linking INVS and NPHP3 to NEK8 and INVS may target the complex to the proximal ciliary axoneme. Interacts with ANKS3 (By similarity).
