Official Full Name
ROCK2 Rho-associated, coiled-coil containing protein kinase 2
The protein encoded by this gene is a serine/threonine kinase that regulates cytokinesis, smooth muscle contraction,;the formation of actin stress fibers and focal adhesions, and the activation of the c-fos serum response element. This;protein, which is an isozyme of ROCK1 is a target for the small GTPase Rho.
