Mouse Gene Csnk2b (ENSMUST00000025246.12) Description and Page Index
Description: Mus musculus casein kinase 2, beta polypeptide (Csnk2b), transcript variant 2, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_009975) RefSeq Summary (NM_009975): This gene encodes the beta subunit of the casein kinase 2 enzyme, which is a heterotetramer comprised of alpha and/or alpha-prime catalytic subunits and two regulatory beta subunits. Casein kinase 2 is involved in the regulation of several cellular processes including gene expression, protein synthesis and cell proliferation. Knockout of this gene in mice leads to embryonic lethality. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015].

ID:CSK2B_MOUSE DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Casein kinase II subunit beta; Short=CK II beta; AltName: Full=Phosvitin; FUNCTION: Plays a complex role in regulating the basal catalytic activity of the alpha subunit (By similarity). Participates in Wnt signaling. SUBUNIT: Tetramer composed of an alpha subunit, an alpha' subunit and two beta subunits. The beta subunit dimerization is mediated by zinc ions. Interacts with CD163. Also component of a CK2-SPT16- SSRP1 complex composed of SSRP1, SUPT16H, CSNK2A1, CSNK2A2 and CSNK2B, the complex associating following UV irradiation (By similarity). Interacts with TCTEX1D3. Interacts with MUSK; mediates phosphorylation of MUSK by CK2. INTERACTION: P11985-2:Tcte3; NbExp=2; IntAct=EBI-348179, EBI-1781298; PTM: Phosphorylated by alpha subunit (By similarity). SIMILARITY: Belongs to the casein kinase 2 subunit beta family.
The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on P67871
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
