TYK2 Kinase


Kinase, TYK2

Non Receptor Tyrosine Protein Kinase TYK2

Non-Receptor Tyrosine-Protein Kinase TYK2

Tyrosine Kinase 2

A Janus kinase subtype that is involved in signaling from a broad variety of CYTOKINE RECEPTORS. The TYK2 kinase is considered the founding member of the janus kinase family and was initially discovered as a signaling partner for the INTERFERON ALPHA-BETA RECEPTOR. The kinase has since been shown to signal from several INTERLEUKIN RECEPTORS.
