Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Enables protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in positive regulation of T-helper 2 cell differentiation and positive regulation of cytokine production. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including neuron projection extension; protein localization to plasma membrane; and protein phosphorylation. Located in several cellular components, including axon hillock; myelin sheath abaxonal region; and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PRKCZ (protein kinase C zeta).
