From NCBI Gene:

Eukaryotic protein kinases are enzymes that belong to a very extensive family of proteins which share a conserved catalytic core common with both serine/threonine and tyrosine protein kinases. This gene encodes an intestinal serine/threonine kinase harboring a dual phosphorylation site found in mitogen-activating protein (MAP) kinases. The protein localizes to the intestinal crypt region and is thought to be important in intestinal epithelial cell proliferation and differentiation. Alternative splicing has been observed at this locus and two variants, encoding the same isoform, have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

From UniProt:

Required for ciliogenesis (PubMed:24797473). Phosphorylates KIF3A (By similarity). Involved in the control of ciliary length (PubMed:24853502). Regulates the ciliary localization of SHH pathway components as well as the localization of IFT components at ciliary tips (By similarity). May play a key role in the development of multiple organ systems and particularly in cardiac development (By similarity). Regulates intraflagellar transport (IFT) speed and negatively regulates cilium length in a cAMP and mTORC1 signaling-dependent manner and this regulation requires its kinase activity.

From UniProt:

Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy 10 (EJM10): A form of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, a subtype of idiopathic generalized epilepsy generally characterized by afebrile seizures with onset in adolescence (rather than in childhood) and myoclonic jerks, which usually occur after awakening and are triggered by sleep deprivation and fatigue. EJM10 is an autosomal dominant seizure disorder with variable manifestations, even within families. Affected individuals have febrile, myoclonic, tonic-clonic, or absence seizures, although several seizure types can occur in the same individual. Some patients have onset of seizures in the first years of life. [MIM:617924]

Endocrine-cerebroosteodysplasia (ECO): Previously unidentified neonatal lethal recessive disorder with multiple anomalies involving the endocrine, cerebral, and skeletal systems. [MIM:612651]
