  • Function

    Phosphorylates serines and threonines, but also appears to possess tyrosine kinase activity. Implicated in the control of meiosis (By similarity). Involved in cilium assembly. In response to injury that includes DNA damage, NEK1 phosphorylates VDAC1 to limit mitochondrial cell death.
  • Tissue specificity

    High fetal expression in the brain and kidney.
  • Involvement in disease

    Short-rib thoracic dysplasia 6 with or without polydactyly
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. NEK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. NIMA subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Associated with the pericentriolar material. Localizes to centrosome during interphase and mitosis (By similarity).
