    basic FUNCTION
  • acting as a protein serine/threonine kinase
  • PKN1 and PKN3 phosphorylate serine residues in sequence contexts that have an arginine residue in position -3
  • appears to play a pivotal role in maintaining endothelial cell morphology, cell-cell junctions and motility
  • PKN3 plays critical roles in angiogenesis and tumor metastasis
