Protein

Maternal embryonic leucine zipper kinase

Gene

melk

Organism
Xenopus tropicalis (Western clawed frog) (Silurana tropicalis)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at transcript leveli

Functioni

Serine/threonine-protein kinase involved in various processes such as cell cycle regulation, self-renewal of stem cells, apoptosis and splicing regulation. Also plays a role in primitive hematopoiesis, possibly by affecting the expression of genes critical for hematopoiesis. Plays a role in cytokinesis during early development (By similarity).By similarity

Catalytic activityi

ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein.

Enzyme regulationi

Activated by autophosphorylation of the T-loop at Thr-169 and Ser-173: in contrast to other members of the SNF1 subfamily, phosphorylation at Thr-169 is not mediated by STK11/LKB1 but via autophosphorylation instead.By similarity

Post-translational modificationi

Autophosphorylated: autophosphorylation of the T-loop at Thr-169 and Ser-173 is required for activation. Phosphorylated by the maturation promoting factor (MPF), composed of cdk1 and a cyclin-B. Also phosphorylated by some MAPK. Phosphorylated during oocyte maturation. Dephosphorylation destabilizes the protein (By similarity).By similarity
Degraded when cells exit mitosis.By similarity

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
