Summaries for AGK Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AGK Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a mitochondrial membrane protein involved in lipid and glycerolipid metabolism. The encoded protein is a lipid kinase that catalyzes the formation of phosphatidic and lysophosphatidic acids. Defects in this gene have been associated with mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 10. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2012]

GeneCards Summary for AGK Gene

AGK (Acylglycerol Kinase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AGK include sengers syndrome and cataract 38, autosomal recessive. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Regulation of lipid metabolism by Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha). GO annotations related to this gene include NAD+ kinase activity and lipid kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SPHK2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AGK Gene

  • Lipid kinase that can phosphorylate both monoacylglycerol and diacylglycerol to form lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and phosphatidic acid (PA), respectively. Does not phosphorylate sphingosine. Overexpression increases the formation and secretion of LPA, resulting in transactivation of EGFR and activation of the downstream MAPK signaling pathway, leading to increased cell growth.

  • Cataract 38 (CTRCT38) [MIM:614691]: An opacification of the crystalline lens of the eye becoming evident at birth. It frequently results in visual impairment or blindness. Opacities vary in morphology, are often confined to a portion of the lens, and may be static or progressive. In general, the more posteriorly located and dense an opacity, the greater the impact on visual function. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22415731}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 10 (MTDPS10) [MIM:212350]: An autosomal recessive mitochondrial disorder characterized by congenital cataracts, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, skeletal myopathy, exercise intolerance, and lactic acidosis.
