FOXM1 is a therapeutic target for high-risk multiple myeloma.
Nanjing, China. In Leukemia, Jan 2016
Expression of cyclin dependent kinase 6 (CDK6) and NIMA-related kinase 2 (NEK2) was co-regulated with FOXM1 in both HMCLs and myeloma patient samples, suggesting interaction of these 3 genes in a genetic network that may lend itself to targeting with small-drug inhibitors for new approaches to myeloma therapy and prevention.
Anks3 alters the sub-cellular localization of the Nek7 kinase.
Freiburg, Germany. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, Sep 2015
Here, we show that Anks3, but not Anks6 interacted with the NIMA-related kinase Nek7, and was heavily modified in the presence of Nek7, resulting in an approximately 20 kD increase in molecular weight.
Ciliary disorder of the skeleton.
Paris, France. In Am J Med Genet C Semin Med Genet, 2012
Mutations have been identified in dynein motor (DYNC2H1), in intraflagellar transport (IFT) complexes (IFT80, IFT122, IFT43, WDR35, WDR19, and TTC21B) as well as in genes responsible for the basal body (NEK1, EVC, and EVC2).
Nek1 and TAZ interact to maintain normal levels of polycystin 2.
Boston, United States. In J Am Soc Nephrol, 2011
data suggest that TAZ and Nek1 constitute a negative feedback loop linked through phosphorylation and ubiquitination and that the interaction of Nek1 and TAZ maintain polycystin 2 at the level needed for proper ciliogenesis
The tuberous sclerosis gene products hamartin and tuberin are multifunctional proteins with a wide spectrum of interacting partners.
Vienna, Austria. In Mutat Res, 2008
Tuberin interacts with 14-3-3 beta,epsilon,gamma,eta,sigma,tau,zeta, Akt, AMPK, CaM, CRB3/PATJ, cyclin A, cyclins D1, D2, D3, Dsh, ERalpha, Erk, FoxO1, HERC1, HPV16 E6, HSCP-70, HSP70-1, MK2, NEK1, p27KIP1, Pam, PC1, PP2Ac, Rabaptin-5, Rheb, RxRalpha/VDR and SMAD2/3.
Early mitotic degradation of Nek2A depends on Cdc20-independent interaction with the APC/C.
Leicester, United Kingdom. In Nat Cell Biol, 2006
In particular, it is unclear why the mitotic checkpoint prevents the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C)-mediated degradation of cyclin B and securin in early mitosis, but not cyclin A. Here, we show that another APC/C substrate, NIMA-related kinase 2A (Nek2A), is also destroyed in pro-metaphase in a checkpoint-independent manner and that this depends on an exposed carboxy-terminal methionine-arginine (MR) dipeptide tail.
PDK2: the missing piece in the receptor tyrosine kinase signaling pathway puzzle.
San Antonio, United States. In Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab, 2005
So far, at least 10 kinases have been suggested to function as an HM kinase or the so-called "PDK2," including mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase-activated protein kinase-2 (MK2), integrin-linked kinase (ILK), p38 MAP kinase, protein kinase Calpha (PKCalpha), PKCbeta, the NIMA-related kinase-6 (NEK6), the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), the double-stranded DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNK-PK), and the ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM) gene product.
