  Domain Name: STKc_PAK6
Catalytic domain of the Protein Serine/Threonine Kinase, p21-activated kinase 6. Serine/threonine kinases (STKs), p21-activated kinase (PAK) 6, catalytic (c) domain. STKs catalyze the transfer of the gamma-phosphoryl group from ATP to serine/threonine residues on protein substrates. The PAK subfamily is part of a larger superfamily that includes the catalytic domains of other protein STKs, protein tyrosine kinases, RIO kinases, aminoglycoside phosphotransferase, choline kinase, and phosphoinositide 3-kinase. PAKs are Rho family GTPase-regulated kinases that serve as important mediators in the function of Cdc42 (cell division cycle 42) and Rac. PAKs from higher eukaryotes are classified into two groups (I and II), according to their biochemical and structural features. PAK6 belongs to group II. Group II PAKs contain a PBD (p21-binding domain) and a C-terminal catalytic domain, but do not harbor an AID (autoinhibitory domain) or SH3 binding sites. PAK6 may play a role in stress responses through its activation by the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) p38 and MAPK kinase 6 (MKK6) pathway. PAK6 is highly expressed in the brain. It is not required for viability, but together with PAK5, it is required for normal levels of locomotion and activity, and for learning and memory. Increased expression of PAK6 is found in primary and metastatic prostate cancer. PAK6 may play a role in the regulation of motility.
