Crossword clues for kinase
The Collaborative International Dictionary
kinase \ki"nase\ (k[imac]"n[=a]s), n. (Biochemistry) One of a class of enzymes that catalyze transfer of a phosphate group from ATP to another molecule; it is a type of phosphorylase.
Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
n. (context enzyme organic compound English) Any of a group of enzymes that transfers phosphate groups from high-energy donor molecules, such as ATP, to specific target molecules (substrates), in a process termed phosphorylation.
n. an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of a proenzyme to an active enzyme
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring a phosphate group to the sidechain oxygen atom of serine or threonine residues in proteins ( protein-serine/threonine kinases). The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP:[acetyl-CoA carboxylase] phosphotransferase. Other names in common use include acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase kinase (phosphorylating), acetyl-CoA carboxylase bound kinase, acetyl-CoA carboxylase kinase, acetyl-CoA carboxylase kinase (cAMP-independent), acetyl-CoA carboxylase kinase 2, acetyl-CoA carboxylase kinase-2, acetyl-CoA carboxylase kinase-3 (AMP-activated), acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase kinase, ACK2, ACK3, AMPK, I-peptide kinase, and STK5.
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring a phosphate group to the sidechain oxygen atom of serine or threonine residues in proteins ( protein-serine/threonine kinases). The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP:[tyrosine-3-monoxygenase] phosphotransferase. Other names in common use include pheochromocytoma tyrosine hydroxylase-associated kinase, STK4, and tyrosine 3-monooxygenase kinase (phosphorylating). This enzyme participates in MAPK signaling pathway and non-small cell lung cancer.
(Pyruvate, phosphate dikinase) kinase (, PPDK regulatory protein, pyruvate, phosphate dikinase regulatory protein, bifunctional dikinase regulatory protein) is an enzyme with systematic name ADP:(pyruvate, phosphate dikinase) phosphotransferase. This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reactionADP + [pyruvate, phosphate dikinase] $\rightleftharpoons$ AMP + [pyruvate, phosphate dikinase] phosphate
This enzyme is isolated from the plants Zea mays ( maize) and arabidopsis.
The enzyme from the bacterium Escherichia coli is bifunctional.
Usage examples of "kinase".
Space had been found for the transplanted material in a gene of vaccinia called thymidine kinase, and it multiplied along with its new host.
The membranes of course contain both the proteins and the enzyme that phosphorylates them, protein kinase C.
During memory formation, transmitter (dark arrow: glutamate) released from the presynaptic side interacts with receptor (II) on the postsynaptic side, resulting in phosphorylation of membrane proteins () by protein kinase C (PK) and entry of calcium (Ca).
