Summaries for RPS6KA2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RPS6KA2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the RSK (ribosomal S6 kinase) family of serine/threonine kinases. This kinase contains 2 non-identical kinase catalytic domains and phosphorylates various substrates, including members of the mitogen-activated kinase (MAPK) signalling pathway. The activity of this protein has been implicated in controlling cell growth and differentiation. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for RPS6KA2 Gene

RPS6KA2 (Ribosomal Protein S6 Kinase, 90kDa, Polypeptide 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RPS6KA2 include dental caries. Among its related pathways are MAPK signaling pathway and Immune System. 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 MKNK2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RPS6KA2 Gene

  • Serine/threonine-protein kinase that acts downstream of ERK (MAPK1/ERK2 and MAPK3/ERK1) signaling and mediates mitogenic and stress-induced activation of transcription factors, regulates translation, and mediates cellular proliferation, survival, and differentiation. May function as tumor suppressor in epithelial ovarian cancer cells.

Tocris Summary for RPS6KA2 Gene

  • Ribosomal S6 protein kinases (RSKs) are a family of protein serine/threonine kinases that regulate diverse cellular processes such as cellular growth, motility, survival and proliferation. The RSK family can be divided into two subfamilies, namely p90 RSK and p70 S6K.

Function for RPS6KA2 Gene

Molecular function for RPS6KA2 Gene

GENATLAS Biochemistry:
ribosomal S6 kinase,90kDa,polypeptide 2,growth factor regulated serine/threonine kinase family,predominantly expressed in lung and skeletal muscle,not involved in vivo in the phosphorylation of RPS6,mediating protein synthesis initiation and elongation induced by hormones or growth factors,maybe playing an essentilal regulatory role in protein synthesis during cell proliferation
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation:
Upon extracellular signal or mitogen stimulation, phosphorylated at Thr-570 in the C-terminal kinase domain (CTKD) by MAPK1/ERK2 and MAPK3/ERK1. The activated CTKD then autophosphorylates Ser-377, allowing binding of PDPK1, which in turn phosphorylates Ser-218 in the N-terminal kinase domain (NTDK) leading to the full activation of the protein and subsequent phosphorylation of the substrates by the NTKD.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Serine/threonine-protein kinase that acts downstream of ERK (MAPK1/ERK2 and MAPK3/ERK1) signaling and mediates mitogenic and stress-induced activation of transcription factors, regulates translation, and mediates cellular proliferation, survival, and differentiation. May function as tumor suppressor in epithelial ovarian cancer cells.
