MASTL is an official symbol provided by HGNC for human gene whose official name is micro tubule associated serine/threonine kinase like. This gene is 32.1 kbps long. This gene is also known as GW, GWL, THC2, MAST-L, GREATWALL. This is present in mainly mammalian cells like human, house mouse, cattle, monkey, etc. It is in the 10th chromosome of the mammalian nucleus. Recent studies have been carried on zebrafish and frogs. This gene encodes for the protein micro tubule associated serine/threonine kinase and its sub-classes.

Micro-tubules associated serine / threonine protein kinase is an enzyme of mammals, which was first discovered in Drosophila as a critical kinase of the great wall for proper chromosome condensation and mitotic progression. The EC number for this enzyme This enzyme is active during mitotic division and mainly localized in the nucleus during interphase. They are scattered in the cytoplasm with the degradation of the nuclear envelope during mitosis. In MASTL depleted cells are delayed by RNA interference in G2 phase and reduction of condensation of chromosomes. Cells RNA, which go through mitosis, can not separate their sister chromatids in anaphase. It causes chromatin trapped in the cleavage furrow and the form 4N G1 cells due to a cytokinesis failure. This enzyme enhances cyclin B1-Cdk1-dependent events of mitosis phosphorylation during mitosis.

This enzyme is also important for the record, metaphase, inhibiting protein phosphatase 2A, which, in turn, leads to a high level of Cdk1 substrate phosphorylation. He also ensures the timely activation of APC / C during meiosis I and Cdk1 reactivation in meiosis II.

Mutations in the gene

Missense mutation in the MASTL gene can cause an autosomal dominant inherited thrombocytopenia. Mutation in connection with a change in the amino acid glutamic acid 167 to aspartic acid. The overall mild phenotype of the patient thrombocytopenia is a decrease in the average plate counts of 60.000 platelets per ml of blood.

Used in therapeutic area

MASTL enzyme is also used for therapeutic applications such as cancer progression and tumor recurrence after cancer treatment and this enzyme may be of higher value in the therapeutic market.
