NEK7 is a member of the NIMA family of serine/threonine kinases. In contrast to the other documented NIMA-related kinases, NEK7 harbor its catalytic domain in the C-terminus of the protein. Immunofluorescence studies suggest that NEK7 is cytoplasmic and located on chromosome 1 (1). The major protein kinase that is active on the p70 S6 kinase hydrophobic regulatory site (FXXFS/TF/Y) Thr412, was purified from rat liver and identified as NEK7 (2). NEK7 kinase activity is rapidly and efficiently increased by serum deprivation, and may be regulated in a cell cycle-dependent manner.
