Gene: Nek2 (NIMA-related kinase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nek2
Name: NIMA-related kinase 2
RGD ID: 619792
Description: Predicted to have protein kinase activity and protein phosphatase binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including microtubule cytoskeleton organization; positive regulation of DNA metabolic process; and regulation of cell cycle process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including microtubule cytoskeleton; midbody; and nuclear lumen. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa 67. Orthologous to human NEK2 (NIMA related kinase 2); INTERACTS WITH acetamide; acrylamide; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: NIMA (never in mitosis gene a)-related expressed kinase 2; NIMA (never in mitosis gene a)-related kinase 2; serine/threonine-protein kinase Nek2
