Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits several functions, including identical protein binding activity; phosphotyrosine residue binding activity; and protein kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; antigen receptor-mediated signaling pathway; and protein phosphorylation. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytosol; mitochondrion; and pseudopodium. Used to study Weissenbacher-Zweymuller syndrome; autism spectrum disorder; and velocardiofacial syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in adenocarcinoma (multiple); pulmonary hypertension; and renal cell carcinoma. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human MAPK1 (mitogen-activated protein kinase 1).
