Scientific Background :MAK or male germ cell-associated kinase is a serine/threonine protein kinase related to kinases involved in cell cycle regulation which is expressed almost exclusively in the testis, primarily in germ cells. MAK plays an important role in spermatogenesis (1). MAK is also required for retinal photoreceptor survival (2). MAK is a regulator of ciliary length, as a cause of retinitis pigmentosa.
