Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Is predicted to enable ATP binding activity and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including intracellular protein transport; peptidyl-serine phosphorylation; and regulation of chromatin assembly or disassembly. Acts upstream of or within cellular response to DNA damage stimulus; chromatin organization; and phosphorylation. Predicted to be located in nucleoplasm. Predicted to be active in nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; genitourinary system; and hemolymphoid system gland. Orthologous to human TLK1 (tousled like kinase 1).
