Entrez Gene Summary for NEK11 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the never in mitosis gene A family of kinases. The encoded protein localizes to the nucleoli, and may function with NEK2A in the S-phase checkpoint. The encoded protein appears to play roles in DNA replication and response to genotoxic stress. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for NEK11 Gene

NEK11 (NIMA-Related Kinase 11) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include protein serine/threonine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NEK2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NEK11 Gene

  • Protein kinase which plays an important role in the G2/M checkpoint response to DNA damage. Controls degradation of CDC25A by directly phosphorylating it on residues whose phosphorylation is required for BTRC-mediated polyubiquitination and degradation.

Function for NEK11 Gene

Molecular function for NEK11 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity: ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation: Autorepressed by intramolecular binding of the C-terminus which dissociates following phosphorylation by NEK2 isoform 1 in G1/S-arrested cells. NEK2 isoform 2 is largely not present in the nucleolus, and does not appear to phosphorylate NEK11. Activated in response to DNA damage. Inhibited by zinc.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function: Protein kinase which plays an important role in the G2/M checkpoint response to DNA damage. Controls degradation of CDC25A by directly phosphorylating it on residues whose phosphorylation is required for BTRC-mediated polyubiquitination and degradation.
