Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits acylglycerol kinase activity; ceramide kinase activity; and diacylglycerol kinase activity. Involved in ceramide biosynthetic process and lipid phosphorylation. Localizes to membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; integumental system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Sengers syndrome and cataract 38. Orthologous to human AGK (acylglycerol kinase).
