    The Polo-like kinase (Plk) family comprises four cell cycle serine/threonine kinases, Plk1-4. Among these, Plk1 has been most thoroughly characterized; it contains a conserved kinase domain and a C-terminal docking site for S/T-phosphorylated proteins (polo-box domain, PBD). Polo-like kinases...
