Background: The NIMA-related kinases or NEKs represents a group of protein kinases whose members have key roles in mitosis. Human cells express eleven genes that encode NEK1 to NEK11 sharing approximately 40–45% identity with NIMA kinase, the founding member of this family of Aspergillus nidulan. NEK6 and NEK7 share 87% amino acid identity within the kinase domain and only significantly differ from one another within a short N-terminal extension. NEK6 is activated during mitosis, concomitant with an increase in NEK6 protein level whereas the protein level NEK7 appears to be relatively constant throughout the cell cycle. NEK6 and NEK7 are phosphorylated and activated by NEK9, contributing to mitosis progression.
