Fas-activated serine/threonine kinase

Jump to: navigation, search

In enzymology, a Fas-activated serine/threonine kinase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

ATP + [Fas-activated serine/threonine protein] ADP + [Fas-activated serine/threonine phosphoprotein]

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are ATP and [[[Fas-activated serine/threonine protein]]], whereas its two products are ADP and [[[Fas-activated serine/threonine phosphoprotein]]].

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing groups protein-serine/threonine kinases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP:[Fas-activated serine/threonine protein] phosphotransferase. Other names in common use include FAST, FASTK, and STK10.
