  MYLK Family

Myosin light chain kinases (MYLK/MLCKs) are calcium/Calmodulin-dependent enzymes that regulate muscle contraction. They phosphorylate myosin regulatory light chains, which in turn interact with actin filaments. The MYLK family contains four members, MLCK/MYLK and MYLKs 2-4. In particular, the MYLK gene encodes both the smooth-muscle and non-muscle (nmMYLK) isoforms of MYLK. MYLK plays a part in a wide range of biological processes whereby smooth-muscle MYLK regulates lymphatic contractility and vascular permeability, and nmMYLK appears to play a role in inflammation. Recent studies have indicated that upregulation of MYLK results in increased susceptibility to inflammatory conditions such as asthma. MYLK hypermethylation has been observed in gastric cancers where rate of methylation is associated with tumor size. Thus, MYLK methylation patterns may be useful as biomarkers for the diagnosis of certain cancers.

SignalChem offers Active Kinases for all members of the MYLK family and related signaling proteins and reagents to facilitate the study of these molecules and their downstream pathways.
