Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cAMP-dependent protein kinase regulator activity. Involved in several processes, including cardiac muscle cell proliferation; negative regulation of protein kinase activity; and sarcomere organization. Localizes to the glutamatergic synapse and neuromuscular junction. Predicted to colocalize with the axoneme and immunological synapse. Used to study Carney complex; primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease; and thyroid gland follicular carcinoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Carney complex; acrodysostosis; and primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; central nervous system; ganglia; sensory organ; and tooth. Orthologous to human PRKAR1A (protein kinase cAMP-dependent type I regulatory subunit alpha).
