Gene: NEK6 (NIMA related kinase 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NEK6
Name: NIMA related kinase 6
Description: Exhibits several functions, including ATP binding activity; enzyme binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in chromosome segregation; protein phosphorylation; and regulation of mitotic metaphase/anaphase transition. Localizes to several cellular components, including the centriolar satellite; cytosol; and nucleoplasm. Colocalizes with the centrosome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: never in mitosis A-related kinase 6; NIMA (never in mitosis gene a)-related kinase 6; NIMA-related kinase 6; nimA-related protein kinase 6; protein kinase SID6-1512; putative serine-threonine protein kinase; serine/threonine-protein kinase Nek6; SID6-1512
