a protein kinase of the WEE family. A nuclear protein which catalyzes the inhibitory tyrosine phosphorylation of CDC2/cyclin B kinase, and appears to coordinate the transition between DNA replication and mitosis by protecting the nucleus from cytoplasmically activated CDC2 kinase. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
