SEQUENCE SIMILARITIES

Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family.

TISSUE SPECIFICITY

Smooth muscle and non-muscle isozymes are expressed in a wide variety of adult and fetal tissues and in cultured endothelium with qualitative expression appearing to be neither tissue- nor development-specific. Non-muscle isoform 2 is the dominant splice variant expressed in various tissues. Telokin has been found in a wide variety of adult and fetal tissues. Accumulates in well differentiated enterocytes of the intestinal epithelium in response to tumor necrosis factor (TNF).

POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFICATION

Can probably be down-regulated by phosphorylation. Tyrosine phosphorylation by ABL1 increases kinase activity, reverses MLCK-mediated inhibition of Arp2/3-mediated actin polymerization, and enhances CTTN-binding. Phosphorylation by SRC at Tyr-464 and Tyr-471 promotes CTTN binding.; The C-terminus is deglutamylated by AGTPBP1/CCP1, AGBL1/CCP4 and AGBL4/CCP6, leading to the formation of Myosin light chain kinase, smooth muscle, deglutamylated form. The consequences of C-terminal deglutamylation are unknown (By similarity).; Acetylated at Lys-608 by NAA10/ARD1 via a calcium-dependent signaling; this acetylation represses kinase activity and reduces tumor cell migration.

SUBCELLULAR LOCATION

Cytoplasm, Cell projection, Cleavage furrow.

FUNCTION

MLCK, a member of the Ser/Thr protein kinase family, is a calcium/calmodulin-dependent enzyme responsible for smooth muscle contraction via phosphorylation of a specific serine in the N-terminus of myosin light chains (MLC), an event that facilitates myosin interaction with actin filaments. It is a central determinant in the development of vascular permeability and tissue edema formation. In the nervous system it has been shown to control the growth initiation of astrocytic processes in culture and to participate in transmitter release at synapses formed between cultured sympathetic ganglion cells. MLCK acts as a critical participant in signaling sequences that result in fibroblast apoptosis. Smooth muscle and non-muscle isozymes are expressed in a wide variety of adult and fetal tissues and in cultured endothelium with qualitative expression appearing to be neither tissue- nor development-specific. Non-muscle isoform 2 is the dominant splice variant expressed in various tissues. The Telokin isoform, which binds calmodulin, has been found in a wide variety of adult and fetal tissues. MLCK is probably down-regulated by phosphorylation. The protein contains 1 fibronectin type III domain and 9 immunoglobulin-like C2-type domains.
