IK, a tumor-suppressor transcription factor, is selectively expressed in the hemo-lymphoid compartment and is a master regulator for lymphopoiesis. Furthermore, IK is differentially phosphorylated in a cell cycle dependent manner through several phosphorylation kinase consensus binding domains within its primary sequence, including protein kinase A (PKA).
