Target

  • Function

    Calcium/calmodulin-dependent enzyme implicated in smooth muscle contraction via phosphorylation of myosin light chains (MLC). Also regulates actin-myosin interaction through a non-kinase activty (By similarity). Implicated in the regulation of endothelial as well as vascular permeability. In the nervous system it has been shown to control the growth initiation of astrocytic processes in culture and to participate in transmitter release at synapses formed between cultured sympathetic ganglion cells. Critical participant in signaling sequences that result in fibroblast apoptosis.
  • Tissue specificity

    Smooth muscle and non-muscle isozymes are expressed in a wide variety of adult and fetal tissues and in cultured endothelium with qualitative expression appearing to be neither tissue- nor development-specific. Non-muscle isoform 2 is the dominant splice variant expressed in various tissues. Telokin has been found in a wide variety of adult and fetal tissues.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
    Contains 1 fibronectin type-III domain.
    Contains 9 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    MLCK is probably down-regulated by phosphorylation.
    The C-terminus is deglutamylated by AGTPBP1/ CCP1, AGBL1/CCP4 and AGBL4/CCP6, leading to the formation of Myosin light chain kinase, smooth muscle, deglutamylated form. The consequences of C-terminal deglutamylation are unknown.
