Exhibits choline kinase activity. Involved in muscle organ development and phosphatidylcholine biosynthetic process. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; cranium; heart; and sensory organ. Used to study megaconial type congenital muscular dystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in intellectual disability; megaconial type congenital muscular dystrophy; muscular dystrophy; narcolepsy; and recurrent hypersomnia.
