Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have 1-phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase activity and 1-phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase activity. Involved in chemotaxis. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including Golgi apparatus; nuclear envelope; and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in alimentary system; central nervous system; liver; and retina. Orthologous to human PIK3C2G (phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase catalytic subunit type 2 gamma).
