External Ids for FUZ Gene
This gene encodes a planar cell polarity protein that is involved in ciliogenesis and directional cell movement. Knockout studies in mice exhibit neural tube defects and defective cilia, and mutations in this gene are associated with neural tube defects in humans. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FUZ Gene
Probable planar cell polarity effector involved in cilium biogenesis. May regulate protein and membrane transport to the cilium. May regulate the morphogenesis of hair follicles which depends on functional primary cilia (By similarity).
