Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits 1-phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 5-kinase activity and talin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including phosphatidylinositol biosynthetic process; platelet aggregation; and regulation of endocytosis. Localizes to cytosol; glutamatergic synapse; and postsynaptic density. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; ganglia; heart ventricle; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lethal congenital contracture syndrome 3. Orthologous to human PIP5K1C (phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 5-kinase type 1 gamma).
