Scientific Background: LATS2 is a serine/threonine protein kinase belonging to the LATS tumor suppressor family (1). The kinase activity and two conserved domains within LATS2 are responsible for the suppression of tumorigenicity and inhibition of cell growth. LATS2 negatively regulates the cell cycle by controlling G1/S and/or G2/M transition. LATS2 interacts with the centrosomal proteins AURORA A and Ajuba and is required for accumulation of γ-tubulin and spindle formation at the onset of mitosis (2). LATS2 also interacts with a negative regulator of p53 and may function in a positive feedback loop with p53 that responds to cytoskeleton damage. LATS2 can also function as a co-repressor of androgen-responsive gene expression.

NCBI Summary for LATS2
This gene encodes a serine/threonine protein kinase belonging to the LATS tumor suppressor family. The protein localizes to centrosomes during interphase, and early and late metaphase. It interacts with the centrosomal proteins aurora-A and ajuba and is required for accumulation of gamma-tubulin and spindle formation at the onset of mitosis. It also interacts with a negative regulator of p53 and may function in a positive feedback loop with p53 that responds to cytoskeleton damage. Additionally, it can function as a co-repressor of androgen-responsive gene expression. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for LATS2
Function: Negative regulator of YAP1 in the Hippo signaling pathway that plays a pivotal role in organ size control and tumor suppression by restricting proliferation and promoting apoptosis. The core of this pathway is composed of a kinase cascade wherein STK3/MST2 and STK4/MST1, in complex with its regulatory protein SAV1, phosphorylates and activates LATS1/2 in complex with its regulatory protein MOB1, which in turn phosphorylates and inactivates YAP1 oncoprotein and WWTR1/TAZ. Phosphorylation of YAP1 by LATS2 inhibits its translocation into the nucleus to regulate cellular genes important for cell proliferation, cell death, and cell migration. Acts as a tumor suppressor which plays a critical role in centrosome duplication, maintenance of mitotic fidelity and genomic stability. Negatively regulates G1/S transition by down-regulating cyclin E/CDK2 kinase activity. Negative regulator of the androgen receptor. Phosphorylates SNAI1 in the nucleus leading to its nuclear retention and stabilization, which enhances its epithelial-mesenchymal transition and tumor cell invasion/migration activities. This tumor-promoting activity is independent of its effects upon YAP1 or WWTR1/TAZ. Ref.1 Ref.6 Ref.8 Ref.11 Ref.15

Catalytic activity: ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein.

Cofactor: Magnesium.

Subunit structure: Interacts with and is phosphorylated by AURKA. Binds to AR. Interacts with AJUBA during mitosis and this complex regulates organization of the spindle apparatus through recruitment of gamma-tubulin to the centrosome. Interacts (via PPxY motif) with YAP1 (via WW domains). Interacts with MOB1A and MOB1B. Interacts with LIMD1, WTIP and AJUBA. Interacts with SNAI1. Ref.7 Ref.8 Ref.10 Ref.11 Ref.13 Ref.14 Ref.15

Subcellular location: Cytoplasm › cytoskeleton › microtubule organizing center › centrosome. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm › cytoskeleton › spindle pole. Nucleus. Note: Colocalizes with AURKA at the centrosomes during interphase, early prophase and cytokinesis. Migrates to the spindle poles during mitosis, and to the midbody during cytokinesis. Translocates to the nucleus upon mitotic stress by nocodazole treatment. Ref.6 Ref.7 Ref.15

Tissue specificity: Expressed at high levels in heart and skeletal muscle and at lower levels in all other tissues examined. Ref.1 Ref.5

Post-translational modification: Autophosphorylated and phosphorylated during M-phase and the G1/S-phase of the cell cycle. Phosphorylated and activated by STK3/MST2. Ref.1 Ref.7 Ref.9 Ref.15

Sequence similarities: Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family.Contains 1 AGC-kinase C-terminal domain.Contains 1 protein kinase domain.Contains 1 UBA domain.

Sequence caution: The sequence BAA92381.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Frameshift at positions 512 and 526.
