Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits MAP kinase activity; MAP kinase kinase activity; and phosphotyrosine residue binding activity. Involved in several processes, including Bergmann glial cell differentiation; animal organ development; and positive regulation of cellular metabolic process. Localizes to the cytosol; nucleus; and pseudopodium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in colon adenocarcinoma; colorectal adenocarcinoma; endometrial adenocarcinoma; pancreatic ductal carcinoma; and pulmonary hypertension. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; limb; and nervous system. Orthologous to human MAPK3 (mitogen-activated protein kinase 3).
