High impact information on XEEK1

  • This previously identified but unmapped gene, LKB1, has strong homology to a cytoplasmic Xenopus serine/threonine protein kinase XEEK1, and weaker similarity to many other protein kinases [1].
  • This site is distinct from the conserved threonine (Thr-215 in XEEK1) present in the protein kinase activation loop that is the site of autophosphorylation for many protein kinases [2].
  • An immunoprecipitate of oocyte/egg extracts with anti-XEEK1 serum contains a protein of approximately 155 kDa that may be a substrate and/or a regulatory component of the kinase [2].
  • XEEK1 is a substrate for the cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase both in vitro and in vivo, suggesting a possible mode of regulation of XEEK1 [2].
