Serine/threonine-protein kinase LATS2 (IPR028742)

Short name: LATS2

Family relationships



There are two mammalian homologue of Drosophila tumor suppressor Lats (large tumor suppressor, also known as Warts): LATS1 and LATS2. Lats/Warts is a serine/threonine-protein kinase that negatively regulates YAP1 (Drosophila Yorkie (Yki) homologue) in the Hippo signaling pathway, which plays a pivotal role in organ size control and tumor suppression by restricting proliferation and promoting apoptosis [PMID: 18158288, PMID: 16096061].

This entry represents LATS2, which plays an important part in centrosome duplication, maintenance of mitotic fidelity and genomic stability [PMID: 15343267].
