Nek10 (NIMA (never in mitosis gene a)-related kinase 10) is a 712 amino acid protein belonging to the NIMA subfamily of kinases and functions as a magnesium-dependent serine/threonine protein kinase. Kinases of the NIMA subfamily are typically involved in genotoxic stress response and DNA replication. Nek10 is expressed in brain and may contain a 14-3-3 interaction motif in its C-terminus. The gene encoding Nek10 has been localized to a region on chromosome 3 that may contribute to vulnerability to addictions. Due to alternative splicing events, three isoforms exist for Nek10.
