Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable ATP binding activity; identical protein 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. Predicted to act upstream of or within several processes, including chromatin organization; phosphorylation; and spermatogenesis. Located in 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 intellectual developmental disorder. Orthologous to human TLK2 (tousled like kinase 2).
