Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits 1-phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including autophagosome organization; negative regulation of zinc ion transmembrane transport; and phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including nucleoplasm; phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex; and vesicle. Orthologous to human PIK3C2A (phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase catalytic subunit type 2 alpha).
