a protein kinase of the STE20 family. Proteolytically activated by caspase during apoptosis. Activated by apoptotic signals as well as other stress conditions. Full activation requires both phosphorylation and caspase-mediated cleavage. Phosphorylation at serine 327 of Mst1, which is close to the caspase-3 recognition site, inhibits caspase-mediated cleavage. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
