GeneCards Summary for NEK9 Gene
NEK9 (NIMA-Related Kinase 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NEK9 include nephronophthisis. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Mitotic Prophase. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NEK2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NEK9 Gene
Pleiotropic regulator of mitotic progression, participating in the control of spindle dynamics and chromosome separation. Phosphorylates different histones, myelin basic protein, beta-casein, and BICD2. Phosphorylates histone H3 on serine and threonine residues and beta-casein on serine residues. Important for G1/S transition and S phase progression. Phosphorylates NEK6 and NEK7 and stimulates their activity by releasing the autoinhibitory functions of Tyr-108 and Tyr-97 respectively.
