This enzyme phosphorylates and inactivates protein phosphatase 2A. The funtion appears to be related to the catalytic domain of p21-activated p65(PAK) protein kinase which is produced in apoptotic cells. AK is also involved in cytoskeleton organization and other signal transduction processes.
One unit is the amount of enzyme that will incorporate 1 nmole of phosphoryl groups using myelin basic protein as a substrate per minute at pH 7 at 30 deg C.
