Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits protein serine/threonine kinase activity and ribosome binding activity. Involved in several processes, including heart development; positive regulation of cellular component organization; and regulation of protein phosphorylation. Localizes to several cellular components, including TORC1 complex; cytosol; and dendrite. Colocalizes with PML body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease; kidney angiomyolipoma; lung disease (multiple); prostate cancer; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in central nervous system; early conceptus; respiratory system; and retina. Orthologous to human MTOR (mechanistic target of rapamycin kinase).
