FunctionMay play a role in the signal transduction pathway of apoptosis induced by O6-methylguanine-mispaired lesions (By similarity). May be involved in energy and/or nutrient sensing through the AMPK and mTOR signaling pathways. May regulate phosphorylation of RPS6KB1.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed with highest levels in muscle, nasal mucosa, salivary gland, uvula, fat, liver, heart, placenty and pancreas. Moderately expressed in the lung, small intestine, kidney and brain. Lower levels detected in renal cell carcinoma than in normal kidney tissue. Higher levels detected in oncocytoma than in normal kidney.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the FNIP family.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated by AMPK.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Co-localizes with FLCN in the cytoplasm.
