FAMILY
DESCRIPTION
Also known as ROCK2_HUMAN, ROCK2, KIAA0619. Protein kinase which is a key regulator of actin cytoskeleton and cell polarity. Involved in regulation of smooth muscle contraction, actin cytoskeleton organization, stress fiber and focal adhesion formation, neurite retraction, cell adhesion and motility via phosphorylation of ADD1, BRCA2, CNN1, EZR, DPYSL2, EP300, MSN, MYL9/MLC2, NPM1, RDX, PPP1R12A and VIM. Phosphorylates SORL1 and IRF4. Acts as a negative regulator of VEGF-induced angiogenic endothelial cell activation. Positively regulates the activation of p42/MAPK1-p44/MAPK3 and of p90RSK/RPS6KA1 during myogenic differentiation. Plays an important role in the timely initiation of centrosome duplication. Inhibits keratinocyte terminal differentiation. May regulate closure of the eyelids and ventral body wall through organization of actomyosin bundles. Plays a critical role in the regulation of spine and synaptic properties in the hippocampus. Plays an important role in generating the circadian rhythm of the aortic myofilament Ca(2+) sensitivity and vascular contractility by modulating the myosin light chain phosphorylation. Homodimer (By similarity). Interacts with IRS1 (By similarity). Interacts with RAF1 (By similarity). Interacts with RHOA (activated by GTP), RHOB and RHOC (By similarity). Interacts with PPP1R12A (PubMed:10579722, PubMed:19131646). Interacts with EP300 (PubMed:16574662). Interacts with CHORDC1 (PubMed:20230755). Interacts with BRCA2 (PubMed:21084279). Interacts with NPM1; this interaction enhances ROCK2 activity (PubMed:17015463). Interacts with SORL1 (PubMed:21147781).
