Description
Predicted to enable Hsp90 protein binding activity. Acts upstream of or within lens development in camera-type eye; myofibril assembly; and striated muscle tissue development. Located in Z disc. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; eye; mesoderm; musculature system; and myoblast. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract 43 and myofibrillar myopathy. Orthologous to human UNC45B (unc-45 myosin chaperone B).
