Previous GeneCards Identifiers for MAST1 Gene
This gene is a member of the microtubule-associated serine/threonine kinase (MAST) family. The protein encoded by this gene has an N-terminal serine/threonine kinase domain followed by a postsynaptic density protein-95/discs large/zona occludens-1 (PDZ) domain. In mouse and rat, the orthologous protein associates with the cytoskeleton and can bind both beta-2-syntrophin and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) through its PDZ domain. In mouse and rat, this protein also co-localizes with dystrophin- and utrophin-associated protein complexes (DAPC/UAPC) in the vascular endothelium of the central nervous system.

GeneCards Summary for MAST1 Gene
MAST1 (Microtubule Associated Serine/Threonine Kinase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAST1 include Mega-Corpus-Callosum Syndrome With Cerebellar Hypoplasia And Cortical Malformations. Gene Ontology (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 MAST2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAST1 Gene
Appears to link the dystrophin/utrophin network with microtubule filaments via the syntrophins. Phosphorylation of DMD or UTRN may modulate their affinities for associated proteins (By similarity).
