Brief description We have identified that a protein called sphingosine kinase 2 (SK2) is a potential target for anti-cancer therapies. Our preliminary studies indicate that phosphorylation of SK2 controls its function. In this proposal we will define how phosphorylation alters SK2 function so that potential therapies may be developed to target this process.
