Unc-51 Like Kinase 4 (ULK4)
is well expressed, 0.8 times the average gene in this release. ULK4
contains 50 different gt-ag introns. Transcription produces 15 alternatively spliced mRNAs. There are 7 probable alternative promotors, 9 non overlapping alternative last exons and 9 validated alternative polyadenylation sites. The mRNAs appear to differ by truncation of the 5' end, truncation of the 3' end, presence or absence of 7 cassette exons, overlapping exons with different boundaries. There are 2 articles specifically referring to this gene in PubMed. Functionally, the gene has been proposed to participate in a process (protein amino acid phosphorylation). Proteins are expected to have molecular functions (ATP binding, nucleotide binding, protein kinase activity, protein serine/threonine kinase activity, transferase activity and 1 other) and to localize in nucleus.
