Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein serine/threonine phosphatase activity. Involved in several processes, including circadian regulation of gene expression; entrainment of circadian clock by photoperiod; and positive regulation of extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in absence of ligand. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm. Predicted to colocalize with the nuclear chromosome, telomeric region. Is expressed in several structures, including esophagus; eye; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human PPP1CA (protein phosphatase 1 catalytic subunit alpha).
