Gene: Nek6 (NIMA-related kinase 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nek6
Name: NIMA-related kinase 6
CRRD ID: 727779
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including ATP binding activity; enzyme binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including positive regulation of I-kappaB kinase/NF-kappaB signaling; protein phosphorylation; and regulation of mitotic metaphase/anaphase transition. Predicted to colocalize with centrosome. Orthologous to human NEK6 (NIMA related kinase 6); INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,4-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: never in mitosis A-related kinase 6; NIMA (never in mitosis gene a)-related expressed kinase 6; NIMA (never in mitosis gene a)-related kinase 6; nimA-related protein kinase 6; serine/threonine-protein kinase Nek6
