Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits neuropilin binding activity. Involved in neuron projection morphogenesis; positive regulation of JNK cascade; and regulation of actin cytoskeleton organization. Localizes to the axonal growth cone and dendritic growth cone. Colocalizes with the actin cytoskeleton. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human TAOK2 (TAO kinase 2).
