  2. NDK B
  3. NDP kinase B
  4. nm23-H2
  5. Histidine protein kinase NDKB
Gene Name NME2
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Involved in nucleoside diphosphate kinase activity
Specific Function Major role in the synthesis of nucleoside triphosphates other than ATP. Negatively regulates Rho activity by interacting with AKAP13/LBC. Acts as a transcriptional activator of the MYC gene; binds DNA non-specifically (PubMed:8392752). Exhibits histidine protein kinase activity.
