a serine-threonine protein kinase that controls sodium and chloride ion transport. May regulate the activity of the thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransporter SLC12A3 by phosphorylation. May also play a role in actin cytoskeletal reorganization. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
