Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein serine/threonine/tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cellular protein metabolic process; positive regulation of podosome assembly; and protein localization to tricellular tight junction. Localizes to the cytosol and mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in colorectal cancer; pancreatic adenocarcinoma; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human MAPK9 (mitogen-activated protein kinase 9).
