Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity; protein kinase activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including activation of MAPK activity; cardiac muscle contraction; and negative regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis. Predicted to localize to cytosol and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Pick's disease; cervical cancer; ovarian carcinoma; progressive supranuclear palsy; and restrictive cardiomyopathy. Orthologous to human MAP2K6 (mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 6).
