Elongation Factor 2 Kinase
MeSH HeadingElongation Factor 2 Kinase
Tree NumberD08.811.913.696.620.682.700.125.425
Tree NumberD12.644.360.100.425
Tree NumberD12.776.476.100.425
Scope NoteA monomeric calcium-calmodulin-dependent protein kinase subtype that specifically phosphorylates PEPTIDE ELONGATION FACTOR 2. The enzyme lacks a phosphorylatable activation domain that can respond to CALCIUM-CALMODULIN-DEPENDENT PROTEIN KINASE KINASE, however it is regulated by phosphorylation by PROTEIN KINASE A and through intramolecular autophosphorylation.
