MeSH Heading
Elongation Factor 2 Kinase
Tree Number(s)
D08.811.913.696.620.682.700.125.425
D12.776.476.563.125.425
Unique ID
D054736
RDF Unique Identifier

Scope Note
A 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.
