STK16 is serine/threonine kinase 16 which constitute the catalytic subunit of a multisubunit kinase. STK16 is ubiquitously expressed at very low levels and expression of an STK16 fusion protein showed that STK16 is localized with Golgi and Golgi-derived vesicles. The overexpression of STK16 leads to disorganization of the Golgi apparatus into vesicular structures and STK16 is highlyinvolved in the secretory pathway (1). STK16 is involved in the transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta signalling pathway (2).
