Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables ATP binding activity; calmodulin binding activity; and protein kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to interferon-gamma; protein phosphorylation; and regulation of NMDA receptor activity. Acts upstream of or within extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway via death domain receptors. Located in cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; liver and biliary system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in urinary bladder cancer. Orthologous to human DAPK1 (death associated protein kinase 1).
