Entrez Gene Summary for TESK2 Gene

  • This gene product is a serine/threonine protein kinase that contains an N-terminal protein kinase domain that is structurally similar to the kinase domains of testis-specific protein kinase-1 and the LIM motif-containing protein kinases (LIMKs). Its overall structure is most related to the former, indicating that it belongs to the TESK subgroup of the LIMK/TESK family of protein kinases. This gene is predominantly expressed in testis and prostate. The developmental expression pattern of the rat gene in testis suggests an important role for this gene in meitoic stages and/or early stages of spermiogenesis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TESK2 Gene

TESK2 (Testis-Specific Kinase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Focal adhesion and Regulation of Microtubule Cytoskeleton. GO annotations related to this gene include protein serine/threonine kinase activity and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is LIMK1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TESK2 Gene

  • Dual specificity protein kinase activity catalyzing autophosphorylation and phosphorylation of exogenous substrates on both serine/threonine and tyrosine residues. Phosphorylates cofilin at Ser-3. May play an important role in spermatogenesis
