MARK2 a CAMK protein kinase of the CAMKL group. Plays a role in epithelial morphogenesis. Modulates the developmental decision to build a columnar versus a hepatic epithelial cell apparently by promoting a switch from a direct to a transcytotic mode of apical protein delivery. Essential for the asymmetric development of membrane domains of polarized epithelial cells. One or more isoforms may play a role in graft rejection. 12 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative promoter. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
