Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
Expressed in the brain (at protein level).
Phosphorylation at Tyr-722 reduces its binding to RHOA and is crucial for focal adhesion dynamics. Dephosphorylation by PTPN11 stimulates its RHOA binding activity.; Cleaved by granzyme B during apoptosis. This leads to constitutive activation of the kinase and membrane blebbing.

Rho, the Ras-related small GTPase, is responsible for the regulation of Actin-based cytoskeletal structures, including stress fibers, focal adhesions and the contractile ring apparatus. Rho proteins function as molecular switches that are able to turn cytokinesis on and off. Although little is known about signaling downstream of Rho, a host of putative Rho effector proteins have been de-scribed, including rhophilin, Rhotekin, citron and the serine/threonine kinase, protein kinase N. Two additional Rho-activated serine/threonine kinases have been described, designated Rock-1 and Rock-2 (also referred to as Roka) for Rho-associated coil-containing protein kinase. Rock-1 and Rock-2 share a structural similarity with myotonic dystrophy kinase.
