Salt-inducible kinase 2 (SIK2), like its closely related homolog SIK1, belongs AMPK subfamily of the Ser/Thr protein kinase family and negatively regulates CRE-binding protein (CREB) activity by phosphorylating the CREB-specific coactivator transducer of regulated CREB activity (TORC). SIK2 is thought to be part of a signaling cascade that regulates the expression and activity of the insulin-induced genes PGC-1 alpha and UCP-1 in brown adipocytes, impairment of which has been implicated in obesity and insulin resistance in human and animal models. SIK2 has also been reported as a key regulator for neuronal survival after ischemia, suppressing CREB-mediated gene expression after oxygen-glucose deprivation.
