This gene encodes a member of the casein kinase I gene family. This family is comprised of serine/threonine kinases that phosphorylate acidic proteins such as caseins. The encoded kinase plays a role in cell cycle checkpoint arrest in response to stalled replication forks by phosphorylating Claspin. A mutation in this gene may be associated with non-syndromic early-onset epilepsy (NSEOE). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]
GeneCards Summary for CSNK1G1 Gene
CSNK1G1 (Casein Kinase 1 Gamma 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CSNK1G1 include Epileptic Encephalopathy, Early Infantile, 15. Among its related pathways are Hedgehog Pathway and p53 pathway (Pathway Interaction Database). 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 CSNK1G3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CSNK1G1 Gene
Serine/threonine-protein kinase. 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. Regulates fast synaptic transmission mediated by glutamate (By similarity). Phosphorylates CLSPN.
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.
