This gene encodes a member of a family of serine/threonine protein kinases that phosphorylate caseins and other acidic proteins. A related protein in the African clawed frog participates in the transmission of Wnt/beta-catenin signaling. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]
GeneCards Summary for CSNK1G3 Gene
CSNK1G3 (Casein Kinase 1 Gamma 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Nanog in Mammalian ESC Pluripotency and Signaling in Gap Junctions. 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 CSNK1G2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CSNK1G3 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).
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.
