SIK3 (QSK) is a serine/threonine-protein kinase, belongs to QIK subfamily. The phosphorylation of SIK3 by LKB1 through the 14-3-3 binding enhances its catalytic activity and leads its localization to punctate structures within the cytoplasm (1). Overexpression of SIK3 promotes G1/S cell cycle progression with ovarian cancer (2). There are two sites (H331L and A1103V) were mutated at significant frequency in breast cancer (3). SIK3 is a novel tumor-associated antigen (TAA).
