Maternal embryonic leucine zipper kinase (MELK) is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the MELK gene. MELK is a serine/threonine kinase belonging to the family of AMPK/Snf1 protein kinases. MELK was first identified present as maternal mRNA in mouse embryos. MELK expression is elevated in a number of cancers and is an active research target for pharmacological inhibition.
