Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits calcium ion binding activity and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including odontoblast differentiation; odontogenesis of dentin-containing tooth; and positive regulation of ossification. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus and extracellular space. Used to study rickets. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in amelogenesis imperfecta. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; connective tissue; embryo endoderm; jaw; and skeleton. Orthologous to human FAM20C (FAM20C golgi associated secretory pathway kinase).
