Previous GeneCards Identifiers 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.
