T LAK cell originated protein kinase
T-LAK cell-originated protein kinase
FunctionPhosphorylates MAP kinase p38. Seems to be active only in mitosis. May also play a role in the activation of lymphoid cells. When phosphorylated, forms a complex with TP53, leading to TP53 destabilization and attenuation of G2/M checkpoint during doxorubicin-induced DNA damage.
Tissue specificityExpressed in the testis and placenta. In the testis, restrictedly expressed in outer cell layer of seminiferous tubules.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase kinase subfamily. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated; in a cell-cycle dependent manner at mitosis.
