Gene: Wnk2 (WNK lysine deficient protein kinase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Wnk2
Name: WNK lysine deficient protein kinase 2
Description: Predicted to have chloride channel inhibitor activity; potassium channel inhibitor activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including protein autophosphorylation; regulation of metal ion transport; and regulation of signal transduction. Predicted to localize to the cytosol. Biomarker of transient cerebral ischemia. Orthologous to human WNK2 (WNK lysine deficient protein kinase 2); INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; bisphenol A; nitrofen.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: kinase deficient protein; LOC306811; RGD1307284; serine/threonine-protein kinase WNK2; similar to protein kinase, lysine deficient 1
