Technical Data
MARK1 (MAP/microtubule Affinity-regulating Kinase 1, MARK, KIAA1477, PAR1 Homolog c, Par1c, Par-1c, Serine/threonine-protein Kinase MARK1)
Microtubule associated proteins regulate the stability of microtubules, controlling processes such as cell polarity/differentiation, neurite outgrowth, cell division and organelle trafficking. The MARK (MAP/microtubule affinity-regulating kinases) family (MARK1-4) of serine/threonine kinases were identified based on their ability to phosphorylate microtubule associated proteins (MAPs) including tau, MAP2 and MAP4 (2-6). MARKs phosphorylate MAPs within their microtubule binding domains, causing dissociation of MAPs from microtubules and increased microtubule dynamics (2-4). In the case of tau, phosphorylation has been hypothesized to contribute to the formation of neurofibrillary tangles observed in Alzheimer's disease. Overexpression of MARK leads to hyperphosphorylation of MAPs, morphological changes and cell death. The tumor suppressor kinase LKB1 phosphorylates MARK and the closely related AMP-kinases within their T-loops, leading to increased activity.
