Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have ATP binding activity and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to gamma radiation; negative regulation of proteasomal ubiquitin-dependent protein catabolic process; and peptidyl-serine phosphorylation. Localizes to intermediate filament; nucleus; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; heart; liver; lung; and spleen. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant non-syndromic intellectual disability. Orthologous to human TLK2 (tousled like kinase 2).
