Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have RNA binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ morphogenesis; cellular response to oxidative stress; and positive regulation of intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to the RISC-loading complex; cytosol; and nucleoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dystonia 16. Orthologous to human PRKRA (protein activator of interferon induced protein kinase EIF2AK2).
