Summaries for VRK1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VRK1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the vaccinia-related kinase (VRK) family of serine/threonine protein kinases. This gene is widely expressed in human tissues and has increased expression in actively dividing cells, such as those in testis, thymus, fetal liver, and carcinomas. Its protein localizes to the nucleus and has been shown to promote the stability and nuclear accumulation of a transcriptionally active p53 molecule and, in vitro, to phosphorylate Thr18 of p53 and reduce p53 ubiquitination. This gene, therefore, may regulate cell proliferation. This protein also phosphorylates histone, casein, and the transcription factors ATF2 (activating transcription factor 2) and c-JUN.

GeneCards Summary for VRK1 Gene

VRK1 (Vaccinia Related Kinase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VRK1 include Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia Type 1A and Microcephaly-Complex Motor And Sensory Axonal Neuropathy Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Initiation of Nuclear Envelope Reformation and Mitotic Metaphase and Anaphase. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CSNK1G2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VRK1 Gene

  • Serine/threonine kinase involved in Golgi disassembly during the cell cycle: following phosphorylation by PLK3 during mitosis, required to induce Golgi fragmentation. Acts by mediating phosphorylation of downstream target protein. Phosphorylates Thr-18 of p53/TP53 and may thereby prevent the interaction between p53/TP53 and MDM2. Phosphorylates casein and histone H3. Phosphorylates BANF1: disrupts its ability to bind DNA, reduces its binding to LEM domain-containing proteins and causes its relocalization from the nucleus to the cytoplasm. Phosphorylates ATF2 which activates its transcriptional activity.
