At3g08720: S6K2 (ARABIDOPSIS THALIANA SERINE/THREONINE PROTEIN KINASE 2)
Encodes a ribosomal-protein S6 kinase. Gene expression is induced by cold and salt (NaCl). Activation of AtS6k is regulated by 1-naphthylacetic acid and kinetin, at least in part, via a lipid kinase-dependent pathway. Phosphorylates specifically mammalian and plant S6 at 25 degrees C but not at 37 degrees C. Involved in translational up-regulation of ribosomal proteins.
