Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits ATP binding activity; magnesium ion binding activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of apoptotic process; positive regulation of cellular metabolic process; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to the mitochondrial inner membrane. Used to study autosomal recessive early-onset Parkinson's disease 6. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Parkinson's disease and autosomal recessive early-onset Parkinson's disease 6. Orthologous to human PINK1 (PTEN induced kinase 1).
