Effects of Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms in Calmodulin-Dependent Protein Kinase Kinase 2 (CAMKK2): A Comprehensive Study

Zoya Khalid, Omar Almaghrabi, Emil Alexov
2020 Computational and Mathematical Methods in Medicine  
Calmodulin-dependent protein kinase kinase 2 (CAMKK2) is a protein kinase that belongs to the serine/threonine kinase family.  ...  This is the first detailed study that predicts the deleterious nsSNPs in CAMKK2 and contributes positively in providing a better understanding of disease mechanisms.  ...  Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most common type of genetic variation, and identifying those SNPs which have a phenotypic effect is a major challenge for medical researchers.  ...
