protein kinase AMP-activated catalytic subunit alpha 2

Gene Summary

Enables AMP-activated protein kinase activity; ATP binding activity; and protein-macromolecule adaptor activity. Involved in several processes, including energy homeostasis; fatty acid homeostasis; and positive regulation of glycolytic process. Located in several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; dendrite; and neuronal cell body. Part of nucleotide-activated protein kinase complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human PRKAA2 (protein kinase AMP-activated catalytic subunit alpha 2).
