Patient manifest gait ataxia and cerebellar atrophy with slow progression. Additional features include brisk tendon reflexes and Hoffmann sign, variable psychomotor retardation and variable seizures. Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. ADCK protein kinase family. 4 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
