The synthetic peptide KKISGRLSPIMTEQ can be used as a substrate for DYRK family kinases in in vitro kinase assays. The peptide corresponds to residues 324-334 of transcription factor FKHR with two lysine residues added at the N-terminus to facilitate binding to phosphocellulose paper.
DYRK2, a dual-specificity tyrosine-(Y)-phosphorylation regulated kinase gene, demonstrate the highest mRNA overexpression level among the genes tested in gastroesophageal and lung adenocarcinomas.
Protein kinase(s) from the DYRK family (dual specificity tyrosine phosphorylated and regulated kinase) may be involved in a new mechanism for the regulation of glycogen synthesis.
