GeneCards Summary for CSNK1A1 Gene
CSNK1A1 (Casein Kinase 1 Alpha 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are NFAT and Cardiac Hypertrophy and Signaling by Wnt. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CSNK1A1L.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CSNK1A1 Gene
Casein kinases are operationally defined by their preferential utilization of acidic proteins such as caseins as substrates. It can phosphorylate a large number of proteins. Participates in Wnt signaling. Phosphorylates CTNNB1 at Ser-45. May phosphorylate PER1 and PER2. May play a role in segregating chromosomes during mitosis (PubMed:11955436, PubMed:1409656, PubMed:18305108). May play a role in keratin cytoskeleton disassembly and thereby, it may regulate epithelial cell migration (PubMed:23902688).
Casein kinase I (CK1) is a monomeric serine-threonine protein kinase with 7 isoforms: alpha, beta, gamma1, gamma2, gamma3, delta and epsilon. CK1 is involved in many cellular processes including DNA repair, cell division, nuclear localization and membrane transport. Isoforms are also integral to development.
