Chromosome 14 open reading frame 104, also known as kintoun, is a protein that in humans is encode by the KTU gene.  The now official name is DNAAF2 
Function [ edit ]
Kintoun is a highly conserved protein involved in the preassembly of
dynein arm complexes which power cilia. These complexes are found in some cilia and are assembled in the cytoplasm prior to transport for ciliogenesis. 
Clinical significance [ edit ]
Mutations in the
C14orf104 are associated with primary ciliary dyskinesia.
