May 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.
Widely 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.
Belongs to the FNIP family.
Phosphorylated by AMPK.
Cytoplasm. Co-localizes with FLCN in the cytoplasm.
