Summaries for DAPK2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DAPK2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the serine/threonine protein kinase family. This protein contains a N-terminal protein kinase domain followed by a conserved calmodulin-binding domain with significant similarity to that of death-associated protein kinase 1 (DAPK1), a positive regulator of programmed cell death. Overexpression of this gene was shown to induce cell apoptosis. It uses multiple polyadenylation sites. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DAPK2 Gene

DAPK2 (Death-Associated Protein Kinase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Pathways in cancer and Glioma. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and calmodulin binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYLK4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DAPK2 Gene

  • Calcium/calmodulin-dependent serine/threonine kinase involved in multiple cellular signaling pathways that trigger cell survival, apoptosis, and autophagy. Regulates both type I apoptotic and type II autophagic cell deaths signal, depending on the cellular setting. The former is caspase-dependent, while the latter is caspase-independent and is characterized by the accumulation of autophagic vesicles. Acts as a mediator of anoikis and a suppressor of beta-catenin-dependent anchorage-independent growth of malignant epithelial cells. May play a role in granulocytic maturation

  • Isoform 2 is not regulated by calmodulin. It can phosphorylate MYL9. It can induce membrane blebbing and autophagic cell death

Function for DAPK2 Gene

Molecular function for DAPK2 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity: ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation: Activated by Ca(2+)/calmodulin. Regulated by a double locking mechanism, involving autophosphorylation at Ser-318, calmodulin binding, and dimerization. In the inactive state, Ser-318 is phosphorylated, and the kinase is dimeric. Activation involves: dephosphorylation at Ser-318, release-of-autoinhibition mechanism where calmodulin binding induces a conformational change that relieves the steric block of the active site by the autoinhibitory domain, and generation of the monomeric active form of the kinase.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function: Calcium/calmodulin-dependent serine/threonine kinase involved in multiple cellular signaling pathways that trigger cell survival, apoptosis, and autophagy. Regulates both type I apoptotic and type II autophagic cell deaths signal, depending on the cellular setting. The former is caspase-dependent, while the latter is caspase-independent and is characterized by the accumulation of autophagic vesicles. Acts as a mediator of anoikis and a suppressor of beta-catenin-dependent anchorage-independent growth of malignant epithelial cells. May play a role in granulocytic maturation
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function: Isoform 2 is not regulated by calmodulin. It can phosphorylate MYL9. It can induce membrane blebbing and autophagic cell death
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction: Up-regulated during granulocytic maturation.
