Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have protein serine/threonine kinase activity and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including epithelial cilium movement involved in extracellular fluid movement; positive regulation of hh target transcription factor activity; and positive regulation of smoothened signaling pathway. Localizes to cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; sensory organ; skeleton; tail somite; and testis. Used to study hydrocephalus. Orthologous to human STK36 (serine/threonine kinase 36).
