Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have protein serine/threonine kinase activity; protein tyrosine kinase activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Involved in several processes, including adherens junction assembly; camera-type eye morphogenesis; and intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in response to DNA damage by p53 class mediator. Localizes to PML body; cytoplasm; and nuclear speck. Is expressed in several structures, including forebrain ventricular layer and future forebrain. Orthologous to human HIPK1 (homeodomain interacting protein kinase 1).
