Gene: Rps6ka2 (ribosomal protein S6 kinase A2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Rps6ka2
Name: ribosomal protein S6 kinase A2
Description: Predicted to have protein serine/threonine/tyrosine kinase activity and ribosomal protein S6 kinase activity; predicted to be involved in several processes, including brain renin-angiotensin system, cardiac muscle cell apoptotic process, and regulation of gene expression; predicted to localize to the cytoplasm, meiotic spindle, and nucleoplasm; orthologous to human RPS6KA2 (ribosomal protein S6 kinase A2); PARTICIPATES IN the extracellular signal-regulated Raf/Mek/Erk signaling pathway; long term potentiation; mitogen activated protein kinase signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride; beta-naphthoflavone.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ribosomal protein S6 kinase alpha-2; ribosomal protein S6 kinase polypeptide 2; ribosomal protein S6 kinase, 90kD, polypeptide 2
