Chk2 (human)

Chk2 a CAMK protein kinase of the Rad53 family. A cell cycle checkpoint regulator and putative tumor suppressor. It contains a forkhead-associated protein interaction domain essential for activation in response to DNA damage and is rapidly phosphorylated in response to replication blocks and DNA damage. Phosphorylates and inhibits CDC25C, preventing entry into mitosis, p53, leading to cell cycle arrest in G1, and BRCA1, restoring survival after DNA damage. Twelve splice variant isoforms have been described for human Chk2. LOF mutants cause Li-Fraumeni syndrome, a highly penetrant familial cancer phenotype also caused by p53 mutations. Familial mutations also associated with prostate and breast cancer, and mutations also seen in a variety of sporadic cancers and cell lines. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
