Summaries for EEF2K Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EEF2K Gene

  • This gene encodes a highly conserved protein kinase in the calmodulin-mediated signaling pathway that links activation of cell surface receptors to cell division. This kinase is involved in the regulation of protein synthesis. It phosphorylates eukaryotic elongation factor 2 (EEF2) and thus inhibits the EEF2 function. The activity of this kinase is increased in many cancers and may be a valid target for anti-cancer treatment. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for EEF2K Gene

EEF2K (Eukaryotic Elongation Factor 2 Kinase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EEF2K include Anoxia. Among its related pathways are RET signaling and P38 MAPK Signaling Pathway (sino). GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and protein kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ALPK1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EEF2K Gene

  • Threonine kinase that regulates protein synthesis by controlling the rate of peptide chain elongation. Upon activation by a variety of upstream kinases including AMPK or TRPM7, phosphorylates the elongation factor EEF2 at a single site, renders it unable to bind ribosomes and thus inactive. In turn, the rate of protein synthesis is reduced.

Tocris Summary for EEF2K Gene

  • Calmodulin-dependent kinases (CaMK) are a family of serine/threonine kinases that mediate many of the second messenger effects of Ca2+. At basal Ca2+ levels, CaMKs are maintained in a dormant state through autoinhibition, which can be relieved by increases in Ca2+ levels.

Post-translational modifications for EEF2K Gene

  • Autophosphorylated at multiple residues, Thr-348 being the major site. Phosphorylated by AMP-activated protein kinase AMPK at Ser-398 leading to EEF2K activation and protein synthesis inhibition. Phosphorylated by TRPM7 at Ser-78 resulting in improved protein stability, higher EE2F phosphorylated and subsequently reduced rate of protein synthesis. Phosphorylation by other kinases such as CDK1 and MAPK13 at Ser-359 or RPS6KA1 and RPS6KB1 at Ser-366 instead decrease EEF2K activity and promote protein synthesis.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys 65, Lys 162, Lys 238, Lys 341, Lys 485, Lys 603, and Lys 705
