a calmodulin-dependent kinase of the DAPK family. Interacts with and is regulated by calcineurin homologous protein (CHP), an EF-hand Ca(2+)-binding protein. In vitro, CHP inhibits the apoptosis-inducing protein kinase DRAK2 in the presence of elevated Ca(2+) levels. Highly expressed in placenta, lung, pancreas. Lower levels in heart, brain, liver, skeletal muscle and kidney. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
