Nik related kinase
NESK, NIK-like embryo-specific kinase
The mouse ortholog of this gene encodes a protein kinase required for JNK activation. The encoded protein may be involved in the induction of actin polymerization in late embryogenesis.[provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010] (from

Nck-interacting kinase (NIK)-related kinase (NRK)/NIK-like embryo-specific kinase (NESK) is a protein kinase that belongs to the germinal center kinase family, and activates the c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) signaling pathway.
