Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits ATP binding activity; calmodulin binding activity; and protein kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to interferon-gamma; extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway via death domain receptors; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; gut; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in urinary bladder cancer. Orthologous to human DAPK1 (death associated protein kinase 1).
