Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Enables several functions, including beta-catenin destruction complex binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and small GTPase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cellular catabolic process; regulation of signal transduction; and regulation of vesicle-mediated transport. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including Golgi organization; positive regulation of histone deacetylase activity; and protein import into nucleus. Located in several cellular components, including cytoplasmic vesicle; endoplasmic reticulum exit site; and mitochondrion. Part of Wnt signalosome and ribonucleoprotein complex. Is active in glutamatergic synapse and presynaptic cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; limb; and spinal cord. Used to study Parkinson's disease 8. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Crohn's disease; Parkinson's disease; Parkinson's disease 8; Parkinsonism; and cancer. Orthologous to human LRRK2 (leucine rich repeat kinase 2).
