23462292 Testicular germ cell tumor susceptibility associated with the UCK2 locus on chromosome 1q23.
19536175 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19532987 The mechanism of phosphate transfer in UCK2 is shown to be concerted, and is accompanied by concerted proton transfer from the 5'-hydroxyl to a conserved active site aspartic acid that serves as a catalytic base
19064610 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18051367 HIV-1 NC upregulates uridine-cytidine kinase 2 in HEK 293T cells
17613536 B4GALT3, DAP3, RGS16, TMEM183A and UCK2--were significantly overexpressed in dup(1q)-positive ALLs compared with high hyperdiploid ALLs without dup(1q).
16484797 gene mapped to chromosome 1.
15280220 UCK2 is responsible for phosphorylation and activation of the antitumor activity of 3'-ethynyl nucleosides 1-(3-C-ethynyl-beta-D-ribopentofuranosyl)cytosine and 1-(3-C-ethynyl-beta-D-ribopentofuranosyl)uridine.
12199906 Increased intranuclear levels of UK may contribute to the metabolic build-up that is needed for Epstein-Barr virus nuclear protein EBNA-3-mediated B-cell blast transformation and rapid proliferation.
