Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Enables 1-phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase activity and 1-phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase activity. Involved in chemotaxis and phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate biosynthetic process. Is extrinsic component of membrane. Is expressed in alimentary system; central nervous system; liver; and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human PIK3C2G (phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase catalytic subunit type 2 gamma).
