Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including macroautophagy; positive regulation of cell size; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to several cellular components, including Atg1/ULK1 kinase complex; autophagosome membrane; and phagophore assembly site membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including heart; musculoskeletal system; nervous system; and trunk paraxial mesenchyme. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast cancer. Orthologous to human RB1CC1 (RB1 inducible coiled-coil 1).
