Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits MAP kinase kinase activity and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including MAPK cascade; cardiac muscle contraction; and regulation of protein metabolic process. Predicted to localize to the cytosol. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cervical cancer and restrictive cardiomyopathy. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human MAP2K3 (mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 3).
