a dual-specificity protein kinase of the DYRK family. Localizes in the cytoplasm. Phosphorylates the translation initiation factor eIF2B at Ser539, priming it for phosphorylation by glycogen synthase kinase-3. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Protein kinase, CMGC; Kinase, protein; EC 126.96.36.199; Protein kinase, dual-specificity (non-receptor); CMGC group; DYRK family; Dyrk2 subfamily
