Gene: Pak2 (p21 (RAC1) activated kinase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Pak2
Name: p21 (RAC1) activated kinase 2
Description: Exhibits protein kinase activity. Involved in cellular response to organic cyclic compound and dendritic spine development. Localizes to glutamatergic synapse and postsynaptic density. Is expressed in several structures, including brain. Used to study autism spectrum disorder. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ductal carcinoma in situ. Orthologous to human PAK2 (p21 (RAC1) activated kinase 2); PARTICIPATES IN vascular endothelial growth factor signaling pathway; epidermal growth factor/neuregulin signaling pathway; mitogen activated protein kinase signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
