Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits 3-phosphoinositide-dependent protein kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cardiac muscle cell apoptotic process; regulation of mast cell degranulation; and type B pancreatic cell development. Localizes to the cytoplasmic vesicle and postsynaptic density. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in prostate cancer. Orthologous to several human genes including PDPK1 (3-phosphoinositide dependent protein kinase 1).
