ADCK4 Atypical kinase involved in the biosynthesis of coenzyme Q, also named ubiquinone, an essential lipid-soluble electron transporter for aerobic cellular respiration. Its substrate specificity is unclear: does not show any protein kinase activity. Probably acts as a small molecule kinase, possibly a lipid kinase that phosphorylates a prenyl lipid in the ubiquinone biosynthesis pathway. Required for podocyte migration. Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. ADCK protein kinase family. Widely expressed, including renal podocytes. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
