UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for FAM83H Gene
May play a major role in the structural organization and calcification of developing enamel (PubMed:18252228). May play a role in keratin cytoskeleton disassembly by recruiting CSNK1A1 to keratin filaments. Thereby, it may regulate epithelial cell migration (PubMed:23902688).
