Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including generation of neurons; metaphase/anaphase transition of mitotic cell cycle; and mitotic sister chromatid segregation. Localizes to actin cytoskeleton; ruffle; and vacuole. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; hemolymphoid system gland; respiratory system; sensory organ; and skeleton. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary autosomal recessive microcephaly 17. Orthologous to human CIT (citron rho-interacting serine/threonine kinase).
