Metabolic pathways map for SMART domain Alpha_kinase


Alpha-kinase family

SMART accession number:SM000811
Description:This family is a novel family of eukaryotic protein kinase catalytic domains, which have no detectable similarity to conventional kinases. The family contains myosin heavy chain kinases and Elongation Factor-2 kinase and a bifunctional ion channel. This family is known as the alpha-kinase family. The structure of the kinase domain revealed unexpected similarity to eukaryotic protein kinases in the catalytic core as well as to metabolic enzymes with ATP-grasp domains.

Pathways containing proteins with Alpha_kinase domain are shown in BLUE, and edges containing orthologs which have Alpha_kinase domain are shown in RED.
