NEK3(redirected from NimA-related protein kinase 3)
NEK3A gene on chromosome 13q14.2-q21.1 that encodes a NEK serine/threonine protein kinase that influences neuronal morphogenesis and polarity by regulating acetylation within the microtubules of neurons. STK1 has prolactin-dependent interaction with PXN, PRLR, VAV1 and VAV2, and has been implicated in prolactin-mediated cytoskeletal reorganisation and motility of breast cancer cells.
