Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity; 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 the cytosol and nucleus. 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).
