Csk and BatK show opposite temporal expression in the rat CNS: consistent with its late expression in development, BatK induces differentiation of PC12 cells.

BatK is a second member of the Csk family of regulatory kinases that phosphorylate a key inhibitory tyrosine on Src family kinases, leading to down-regulation. To investigate the roles of BatK and Csk, both of which are expressed in the brain, we compared their temporal expression patterns during development of the central nervous system (CNS) in rats. BatK… CONTINUE READING
