SNF1LK2 is an alias for the gene, Salt inducible kinase 2, in humans. Other names include: Serine/threonine-protein kinase SIK2; Salt-inducible kinase 2; SIK-2; Serine/threonine-protein kinase SNF1-like kinase 2; Qin-induced kinase; Serine/threonine-protein kinase SIK2 ; LOH11CR1I; QIK. The encoded protein is an enzyme with an amino acid length of 926 and a mass of 103.9 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. SNF1LK2 is a member of the Protein kinase superfamily, CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family, SNF1 subfamily. This gene shares homology with other species, including: Mouse, Frog.
