Serine/threonine-protein kinase NEK1

The NEK1 gene encodes a protein kinase which is involved in control of DNA double-strand repair, neuronal development, and coordination of ciliogenesis. Mutations cause autosomal recessive and digenic recessive Short-rib thoracic dysplasia with or without polydactyly type 6.
