Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein kinase activity. Predicted to contribute to Rac GTPase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including nervous system development; observational learning; and trans-synaptic signaling. Localizes to several cellular components, including the GABA-ergic synapse; glutamatergic synapse; and postsynaptic density. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast cancer; renal cell carcinoma; and schizophrenia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PAK1 (p21 (RAC1) activated kinase 1).
