a protein kinase of the STE20 family. Predominantly expressed in brain. Capable of promoting neurite outgrowth, and thus may play a role in neurite development. Associated with microtubule networks and induces microtubule stabilization. Its subcellular localization is tightly regulated during cell cycle progression. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
