Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including activation of GTPase activity; cellular response to high light intensity; and positive regulation of transport. Localizes to the cell cortex and ruffle membrane. Used to study polycystic ovary syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glucose metabolism disease (multiple); malignant glioma; and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human AKT2 (AKT serine/threonine kinase 2).
