Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits protein kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to glucose starvation; phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate biosynthetic process; and protein localization to phagophore assembly site. Localizes to phagocytic vesicle and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex, class III. Is expressed in Meckel's cartilage; cardiovascular system; limb; and skeleton. Orthologous to human PIK3C3 (phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase catalytic subunit type 3).
