NEK9 [ENSP00000238616]

Serine/threonine-protein kinase Nek9; Pleiotropic regulator of mitotic progression, participating in the control of spindle dynamics and chromosome separation. Phosphorylates different histones, myelin basic protein, beta-casein, and BICD2. Phosphorylates histone H3 on serine and threonine residues and beta-casein on serine residues. Important for G1/S transition and S phase progression. Phosphorylates NEK6 and NEK7 and stimulates their activity by releasing the autoinhibitory functions of Tyr-108 and Tyr-97 respectively; Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. NEK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. NIMA subfamily.
