PASK Serine/threonine-protein kinase involved in energy homeostasis and protein translation. Phosphorylates EEF1A1, GYS1, PDX1 and RPS6. Probably plays a role under changing environmental conditions (oxygen, glucose, nutrition), rather than under standard conditions. Acts as a sensor involved in energy homeostasis: regulates glycogen synthase synthesis by mediating phosphorylation of GYS1, leading to GYS1 inactivation. May be involved in glucose-stimulated insulin production in pancreas and regulation of glucagon secretion by glucose in alpha cells; however such data require additional evidences. May play a role in regulation of protein translation by phosphorylating EEF1A1, leading to increase translation efficiency. May also participate to respiratory regulation. Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. Ubiquitously expressed, with slightly higher expression in brain, prostate and testis. Reduced expression was found in placenta. Present in germ cells of testis and in the midpiece of sperm tails (at protein level). 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
