Role in epithelial morphogenesis. Modulates the developmental decision to build a columnar versus a hepatic epithelial cell apparently by promoting a switch from a direct to a transcytotic mode of apical protein delivery. Essential for the asymmetric development of membrane domains of polarized epithelial cells. One or more isoforms may play a role in graft rejection.
High levels of expression in heart, brain, skeletal muscle and pancreas, lower levels observed in lung, liver and kidney.
Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MARK subfamily. Contains 1 KA1 (kinase-associated) domain. Contains 1 protein kinase domain. Contains 1 UBA domain.
Cell membrane. Phosphorylated by PRKCZ in polarized epithelial cells, resulting in an interaction with YWHAZ which promotes relocation from the lateral to the apical membrane.
