Gene: TAOK2 (TAO kinase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TAOK2
Name: TAO kinase 2
CRRD ID: 1351729
Description: Exhibits mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase binding activity; neuropilin binding activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including focal adhesion assembly; mitotic G2 DNA damage checkpoint; and positive regulation of MAPK cascade. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytoplasmic vesicle; cytosol; and nuclear lumen. Predicted to colocalize with actin cytoskeleton.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: hKFC-C; KIAA0881; kinase from chicken homolog C; MAP3K17; prostate derived STE20-like kinase PSK; prostate-derived STE20-like kinase 1; prostate-derived sterile 20-like kinase 1; PSK; PSK-1; PSK1; PSK1-BETA; serine/threonine-protein kinase TAO2; TAO1; TAO2; thousand and one amino acid protein 2; thousand and one amino acid protein kinase; thousand and one amino acid protein kinase 2
