Protein fuzzy homolog (Fuz)

Probable planar cell polarity effector involved in cilium biogenesis. May regulate protein and membrane transport to the cilium.

Proposed to serve as core part of the CPLANE (ciliogenesis and planar polarity effectors) complex involved in the recruitment of peripheral IFT-A proteins into basal bodies (PubMed:19877275, PubMed:19767740, PubMed:27158779). May regulate the morphogenesis of hair follicles which depends on functional main cilia (PubMed:20962855).
