Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits kinase inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; regulation of alpha-beta T cell differentiation; and regulation of receptor signaling pathway via JAK-STAT. Predicted to localize to cytoplasmic ribonucleoprotein granule; nucleoplasm; and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; genitourinary system; gut; hemolymphoid system gland; and nervous system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ovarian carcinoma; prostate cancer; and urinary bladder cancer. Orthologous to human SOCS1 (suppressor of cytokine signaling 1).
