« Hide More detailed introduction

MST1 (STK3) and MST2 (STK4) are the mammalian homologs of Drosophila Hippo (Hpo), and are core components of the Hippo pathway, which is essentially a kinase cascade whose terminal output regulates the activities of the transcriptional coactivators, Yes-associated protein (YAP) and transcriptional coactivator with PDZ-binding motif (TAZ), and controls expression of a diverse set of genes that are involved in cell proliferation, survival, and migration. Hippo signalling has traditionally been viewed as a key regulator of organ growth and development, tissue homeostasis and tumour suppression in multiple organisms [3]. More recent studies have identified new roles for the Hippo pathway in immunology [1-2,4].
