Nek1, NIMA-related kinase
The protein encoded by this gene is a serine/threonine kinase involved in cell cycle regulation. The encoded protein is found in a centrosomal complex with FEZ1, a neuronal protein that plays a role in axonal development. Defects in this gene are a cause of polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010] (from NCBI)

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.

Dutcher et al., Saint Louis, United States. In Plos Genet, Sep 2015

Anks3 alters the sub-cellular localization of the Nek7 kinase.
Yakulov et al., 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.

Zhong et al., Guangzhou, China. In Bmc Urol, 2014
BACKGROUND: The NIMA-related kinase 2 (NEK2) is a serine/threonine kinase that is involved in regulation of centrosome duplication and spindle assembly during mitosis.

Candidate genes included in these regions might be constitutively (SIX3, SALL4) or somatically (NEK1, PIAS4, BMP2) operational in the development and progression of WT.
The structural mechanisms that underpin mitotic kinase activation.
Bayliss et al., Oxford, United Kingdom. In Biochem Soc Trans, 2013
These include members of the Cdk (cyclin-dependent kinase), Plk (Polo-like kinase), Aurora, Nek (NimA-related kinase) and Bub families, as well as Haspin, Greatwall and Mps1/TTK.

Since that discovery, NIMA-related kinases, or NEKs, have been identified in most eukaryotes, including humans where eleven genetically distinct proteins named NEK1 to NEK11 are expressed.
Ciliary disorder of the skeleton.
Cormier-Daire et al., 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 DYNC2H1 are both involved in short rib polydactyly Majewski type but not in Beemer Langer cases.
Cormier-Daire et al., Paris, France. In J Med Genet, 2012
This study confirms that NEK1 is one gene causing SRP type II but also reports mutations in DYNC2H1, expanding the phenotypic spectrum of DYNC2H1 mutations.

Nek1 and TAZ interact to maintain normal levels of polycystin 2.
Benjamin et al., 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
Phosphorylation of Nup98 by multiple kinases is crucial for NPC disassembly during mitotic entry.

Early mitotic degradation of Nek2A depends on Cdc20-independent interaction with the APC/C.
Fry et al., 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.
