Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits diphosphoinositol-pentakisphosphate kinase activity and inositol hexakisphosphate kinase activity. Predicted to be involved in inositol metabolic process and inositol phosphate biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to the cytosol. Used to study nonsyndromic deafness. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; sensory organ; and trigeminal nerve. Orthologous to human PPIP5K2 (diphosphoinositol pentakisphosphate kinase 2).
