Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have transferase activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of JNK cascade; negative regulation of cell population proliferation; and protein O-linked mannosylation. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus. Used to study Fukuyama congenital muscular dystrophy and muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dilated cardiomyopathy (multiple) and muscular dystrophy (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; future brain; genitourinary system; retina; and spleen. Orthologous to human FKTN (fukutin).
