Previous Symbols for DNAL1 Gene
This gene encodes an axonemal dynein light chain which functions as a component of the outer dynein arms complex. This complex acts as the molecular motor that provides the force to move cilia in an ATP-dependent manner. The encoded protein is expressed in tissues with motile cilia or flagella and may be involved in the movement of sperm flagella. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2011]
GeneCards Summary for DNAL1 Gene
DNAL1 (Dynein, Axonemal, Light Chain 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DNAL1 include ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 16 and primary ciliary dyskinesia16: dnal1-related primary ciliary dyskinesia. Among its related pathways are Respiratory electron transport, ATP synthesis by chemiosmotic coupling, and heat production by uncoupling proteins..
