The protein encoded by this gene is activated by phosphorylation and in turn is involved in the phosphorylation of tau proteins MAP2 and MAP4. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]
GeneCards Summary for MARK3 Gene
MARK3 (Microtubule Affinity Regulating Kinase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MARK3 include Brain Stem Astrocytic Neoplasm and Pilocytic Astrocytoma Of Cerebellum. Among its related pathways are RET signaling and Oncogenic MAPK signaling. 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 MARK1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MARK3 Gene
Involved in the specific phosphorylation of microtubule-associated proteins for tau, MAP2 and MAP4. Phosphorylates CDC25C on Ser-216. Regulates localization and activity of some histone deacetylases by mediating phosphorylation of HDAC7, promoting subsequent interaction between HDAC7 and 14-3-3 and export from the nucleus (PubMed:16980613). Negatively regulates the Hippo signaling pathway and antagonizes the phosphorylation of LATS1. Cooperates with DLG5 to inhibit the kinase activity of STK3/MST2 toward LATS1 (PubMed:28087714).
