Predicted to have heat shock protein binding activity and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in positive regulation of axon extension and positive regulation of stress fiber assembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including focal adhesion; lamellipodium; and neuron projection. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; early conceptus; embryo ectoderm; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Used to study Williams-Beuren syndrome. Orthologous to human LIMK1 (LIM domain kinase 1).
