Gene: CHEK2 (checkpoint kinase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CHEK2
Name: checkpoint kinase 2
Description: Exhibits enzyme binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular protein metabolic process; intracellular signal transduction; and protein stabilization. Localizes to Golgi apparatus and PML body. Colocalizes with chromosome, telomeric region. Implicated in several diseases, including Li-Fraumeni syndrome 2; breast cancer (multiple); colorectal cancer; osteosarcoma; and prostate cancer. Biomarker of congestive heart failure; embryonal carcinoma; and seminoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
