a protein kinase of the CDKL family. Mutations have been associated with X-linked infantile spasm syndrome (ISSX), also known as X-linked West syndrome, and Rett syndrome (RTT). Alternate transcriptional splice variants have been characterized. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
