Back to top

Description

EIF2AK2 (PKR) is one of 4 kinases that specifically phosphorylate Ser51 of translation initiation factor eIF2-alpha in response to various environmental stresses. EIF2AK2 plays a key role in antiviral defense mediated through its direct activation by double-stranded RNA produced by viral infection.
