Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including Rab protein signal transduction; nervous system development; and peptidyl-tyrosine autophosphorylation. Localizes to several cellular components, including the axonal growth cone; perinuclear region of cytoplasm; and recycling endosome. Is expressed in brain. Orthologous to human AATK (apoptosis associated tyrosine kinase).
