MYLK2 is a member of the myosin light chain kinase family and is a calcium/calmodulin dependent enzyme that is exclusively expressed in adult skeletal muscle (1). MYLK2 has been proposed to participate in signaling pathways (calcium signaling pathway, focal adhesion, regulation of actin cytoskeleton) and cellular processes (neuromuscular synaptic transmission, protein/amino acid phosphorylation). MYLK2 is involved in multiple molecular functions as a result of various subdomains that participate in ATP binding, calmodulin binding, nucleotide binding, protein serine/threonine kinase activity and transferase activity) (2).
