an atypical member of the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) family. Activated via binding phosphorylated cyclin Y complexed with 14-3-3 zeta, theta, or eta. Plays a role in vesicle-mediated transport processes and exocytosis. Regulates GH1 release by brain neurons. Phosphorylates NSF, and thereby regulates NSF oligomerization. Required for normal spermatogenesis. Regulates neuron differentiation and dendrite development. Plays a role in the regulation of insulin secretion in response to changes in blood glucose levels. Three isoforms of the human protein may be generated via alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
