Regulation and functional characteristics of protein kinase CK2 in plant.

Zhen Li,Wei Liu

Biology
Casein kinase 2
Signal transduction
2009
Casein kinase 2(CK2),a kind of serine/threonine protein kinase,is the first one of the protein kinases that was found.It appears to be ubiquitous and highly conserved in eukaryote.CK2 could play important role in growth and development processes and participate in many metabolic pathways,such as tumorigenesis,inflammatory response and neurodegenerative disease.In plants,CK2 is also involved in different processes that influence many aspects of metabolism and development,such as light signal transduction,stress resistance and circadian clock regulation.This review focuses on CK2 structure,biochemical properties,regulation and their potential functions.The newly research advances of CK2 in plants are also summarized,in order to gain a better understanding of the role of this protein kinases in metabolic and signal transduction pathways,to provide more guidelines for CK2 investigation and application in crop quality improvement.
