SLK or LOSK is a Ste20-like protein kinase that associates with microtubule and centrosome. Inhibition of SLK activity by dominant-negative mutant or RNAi leads to unfocused microtubule arrangement indicating that SLK is needed for microtubule organization and for the proper localization of Golgi complex. Expression of v-Src can down-regulate SLK activity through the involvement of CK2 which can directly phosphorylate and inhibit SLK activity whereas inhibition of CK2 in v-Src-transformed cells results in normal SLK activity. CK2 and SLK can be co-localized in fibroblasts spreading on fibronectin-coated substrates.
