NUAK2 (NUAK family kinase 2) is a protein kinase that plays a role in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, cell proliferation, and cell migration. It is a member of the AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) family of serine/threonine protein kinases, which play a key role in regulating energy homeostasis in cells. NUAK2 is involved in the regulation of several signaling pathways, including the p53 and mTOR signaling pathways, both of which are important for cell growth and survival. NUAK2 is an important protein kinase that plays a role in various cellular processes and has been linked to several human diseases. Further research on NUAK2 and its regulatory mechanisms may lead to the development of novel therapeutic strategies for these diseases.
