Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have protein serine/threonine kinase activity and telomeric DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including nuclear-transcribed mRNA catabolic process, nonsense-mediated decay; phosphorylation; and regulation of telomere maintenance. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm. Orthologous to human SMG1 (SMG1 nonsense mediated mRNA decay associated PI3K related kinase).
