Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including identical protein binding activity; protein phosphatase binding activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including dendritic cell proliferation; positive regulation of defense response; and positive regulation of interferon-beta biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in FTDALS4 and brain disease. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human TBK1 (TANK binding kinase 1).
