MAP/microtubule affinity-regulating kinase 3; Involved in the specific phosphorylation of microtubule- associated proteins for tau, MAP2 and MAP4. Phosphorylates CDC25C on 'Ser-216'. Regulates localization and activity of some histone deacetylases by mediating phosphorylation of HDAC7, promoting subsequent interaction between HDAC7 and 14-3-3 and export from the nucleus. Negatively regulates the Hippo signaling pathway and antagonizes the phosphorylation of LATS1. Cooperates with DLG5 to inhibit the kinase activity of STK3/MST2 toward LATS1.
Synonyms: MARK3, MARK3p, hMARK3, A2SY06, B4DKN1 ...
