Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits mitogen-activated protein kinase binding activity; p53 binding activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of TOR signaling; positive regulation of dendritic spine development; and stress-induced premature senescence. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytoplasm; nucleus; and septin cytoskeleton. Is expressed in brain; embryo; and lung. Orthologous to human MAPKAPK5 (MAPK activated protein kinase 5).
