IQ calmodulin-binding motif-containing protein 1 (IQCB1)

Involved in ciliogenesis.

The function in an early step in cilia formation is dependent upon its association with CEP290/NPHP6 (PubMed:21565611, PubMed:23446637).

Involved in regulation of the BBSome complex integrity, especially for existence of BBS2 and BBS5 in the complex, and in ciliary targeting of selected BBSome cargos. May play a role in controlling entry of the BBSome complex to cilia possibly implicating CEP290/NPHP6 (PubMed:25552655).
