Serine/threonine-protein kinase MRCKγ, encoded by CDC42BPG gene, acts as a downstream effector of CDC42 in cytoskeletal reorganization, and contributes to the actomyosin contractility required for cell invasion, through the regulation of MYPT1 and MLC2 phosphorylation. It belongs to AGC protein kinase family, DMPK subfamily. It contains an N-terminal kinase domain, followed by a coiled-coil domain, a second coiled-coil domain containing a kinase inhibitory motif (KIM), a variable region, a cysteine-rich domain, a pleckstrin (PLEK; 173570) homology (PH) domain, a citron (605629) homology (CNH) domain, and a C-terminal CDC42 (116952)/RAC (602048) interactive binding (CRIB) domain.
