Testis-specific kinase 1

TESK1, testicular protein kinase 1, testis-specific protein kinase 1
This gene product is a serine/threonine protein kinase that contains an N-terminal protein kinase domain and a C-terminal proline-rich domain. Its protein kinase domain is most closely related to those of the LIM motif-containing protein kinases (LIMKs). The encoded protein can phosphorylate myelin basic protein and histone in vitro. The testicular germ cell-specific expression and developmental pattern of expression of the mouse gene suggests that this gene plays an important role at and after the meiotic phase of spermatogenesis.

Some of these transcripts were related to heat shock proteins (DNAJB4, DNAJB14), testis specific genes (TCP11, TESK1, TSPYL1, ADAD1), and Y-chromosome genes (DAZ1, TSPYL1).
Actin remodelling factors control ciliogenesis by regulating YAP/TAZ activity and vesicle trafficking.
Kim et al., Taejŏn, South Korea. In Nat Commun, 2014
We also identify actin remodelling factors LIMK2 and TESK1 as key players in the ciliogenesis control network in which YAP/TAZ and directional vesicle trafficking are integral components.

[Establishment of animal model for in vitro spermatogenesis by heterotopic grafting of neonatal mouse testis].
Cai et al., Shenzhen, China. In Beijing Da Xue Xue Bao, 2004
METHODS: Tissue grafting was performed using testis from 1-2 days old Kun-ming mice as donor tissue and immunodefective mice as recipients; the expression of TESK1 mRNA in grafts was determined by RT-PCR and the spermatogenesis further observed with histological analysis of grafts.
