Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein serine/threonine kinase activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of cellular metabolic process; and regulation of signal transduction. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the axon; cytosol; and microtubule. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; cranium; early conceptus; tongue; and upper jaw. Orthologous to human GSK3A (glycogen synthase kinase 3 alpha).
