Background: Serine-arginine protein kinase 2 (SRPK2) as well as other SRPKs family members (SRPK1 and SRPK3), contains a PKC superfamily kinase domain separated by a unique spacer sequence in individual family members, indicating that specific SRPKs may be uniquely regulated by the spacer sequence. Each SRPK member has its unique expression pattern. Whereas SRPK1 is highly expressed in the testis; SRPK2 can be found mainly in the brain; and in contrast SRPK3 is a muscle-specific protein. SRPKs are constitutively active enzymes that require no post-translational modification to initiate the kinase activity. Nevertheless, their enzymatic activities can be regulated by the status of phosphorylation and subcellular localization e.g. Akt phosphorylates SRPK2, triggers its nuclear translocation and mediates cell cycle progression and cell death in neurons. SRPK2 phosphorylates serine/arginine domain-containing proteins and mediates pre-mRNA splicing and has an important role in controlling neuronal functions. SRPK2 may contribute to the formation of hyperphosphorylated tau and the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s Disease.
