Product Background

Gene summary
NEK6 (NIMA Related Kinase 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Regulation of Glucokinase by Glucokinase Regulatory Protein and Mitotic Prophase. 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 NEK2. The protein encoded by this gene is a kinase required for progression through the metaphase portion of mitosis. Inhibition of the encoded protein can lead to apoptosis. This protein also can enhance tumorigenesis by suppressing tumor cell senescence. Several transcript variants encoding a few different isoforms have been found for this gene.
Antigen Description
Activated during M phase. Required for chromosome segregation at metaphase-anaphase transition and therefore for mitotic progression. Inhibition of activity results in apoptosis. Phosphorylates KIF11 to promote mitotic spindle formation. Protein kinase which plays an important role in mitotic cell cycle progression. Required for chromosome segregation at metaphase-anaphase transition, robust mitotic spindle formation and cytokinesis. Phosphorylates ATF4, CIR1, PTN, RAD26L, RBBP6, RPS7, RPS6KB1, TRIP4, STAT3 and histones H1 and H3. Involved in G2/M phase cell cycle arrest induced by DNA damage. May contribute to tumorigenesis by suppressing p53/TP53-induced cancer cell senescence. Serine/threonine-protein kinase Nek6 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the NEK6 gene. The Aspergillus nidulans never in mitosis A (NIMA) gene encodes a serine/threonine kinase that controls initiation of mitosis. NIMA-related kinases (NEKs) are a group of protein kinases that are homologous to NIMA. Evidence suggests that NEKs perform functions similar to those of NIMA. [supplied by OMIM].
