Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits RNA polymerase II activating transcription factor binding activity; protein serine/threonine kinase activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Contributes to transcription coactivator activity. Involved in several processes, including camera-type eye morphogenesis; protein phosphorylation; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to RNA polymerase II transcription regulator complex; cytoplasm; and nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with PML body. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human HIPK2 (homeodomain interacting protein kinase 2).
