A cDNA for a putative member of the serine/threonine kinase family was cloned from an adult human testis cDNA library. The predicted translation product was identical to ZIP kinase, which has been suggested to play an important role in the induction of apoptosis. The messenger RNA was ubiquitously expressed in various tissues. The chromosomal location of the gene was determined by fluorescence in-situ hybridization and polymerase chain reaction-based analyses with both a human/rodent monochromosomal hybrid cell panel and a radiation hybrid mapping panel. This gene was mapped on the q13.3 region of chromosome 19.
