Catalytic domain of the Protein Serine/Threonine Kinase, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii FA2 and similar domains
Serine/Threonine Kinases (STKs), Chlamydomonas reinhardtii FA2-like subfamily, catalytic (c) domain. STKs catalyze the transfer of the gamma-phosphoryl group from ATP to serine/threonine residues on protein substrates. The Chlamydomonas reinhardtii FA2-like subfamily belongs to the (NIMA)-related kinase (Nek) family. The Nek family includes seven different Chlamydomonas Neks (CNKs 1-6 and Fa2). This subfamily includes FA2 and CNK4. The Nek family is part of a larger superfamily that includes the catalytic domains of other protein STKs, protein tyrosine kinases, RIO kinases, aminoglycoside phosphotransferase, choline kinase, and phosphoinositide 3-kinase. Chlamydomonas reinhardtii FA2 was discovered in a genetic screen for deflagellation-defective mutants. It is essential for basal-body/centriole-associated microtubule severing, and plays a role in cell cycle progression. No cellular function has yet been ascribed to CNK4.
