Background MELK is a member of the AMPK serine/threonine kinase family. It is involved in mammalian embryonic development. Overexpression of MELK protein is also reported in various types of human cancer. MELK plays critical roles not only in cancer cell growth but also in formation or maintenance of cancer stem cells that have the ability to self-renew and differentiate. Emerging evidence indicates that cancer stem cells are resistant to chemotherapy and radiation therapy and are associated with cancer relapse. For these reasons, MELK is considered a promising drug target molecule for cancer treatment.
