Summaries for DGKG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DGKG Gene

  • This gene encodes an enzyme that is a member of the type I subfamily of diacylglycerol kinases, which are involved in lipid metabolism. These enzymes generate phosphatidic acid by catalyzing the phosphorylation of diacylglycerol, a fundamental lipid second messenger that activates numerous proteins, including protein kinase C isoforms, Ras guanyl nucleotide-releasing proteins and some transient receptor potential channels. Diacylglycerol kinase gamma has been implicated in cell cycle regulation and in the negative regulation of macrophage differentiation in leukemia cells. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DGKG Gene

DGKG (Diacylglycerol Kinase Gamma) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Inositol phosphate metabolism (KEGG). GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and diacylglycerol kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is DGKB.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DGKG Gene

  • Reverses the normal flow of glycerolipid biosynthesis by phosphorylating diacylglycerol back to phosphatidic acid.

Tocris Summary for DGKG Gene

  • Diacylglycerol kinases (DGKs) are a group of ten enzymes that metabolize 1,2,diacylglycerol (DAG) to produce phosphatidic acid (PA). They all contain a conserved C'-terminal catalytic domain and two cysteine-rich Zn2+-finger motifs with varied regulatory domains.
