Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity and protein kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including bone resorption; osteoclast development; and regulation of peptidyl-tyrosine phosphorylation. Predicted to localize to cytosol and mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including gut; immune system; liver; lung; and musculature. Used to study osteopetrosis. Orthologous to human LRRK1 (leucine rich repeat kinase 1).
