Summaries for DGKI Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DGKI Gene

  • This gene is a member of the type IV diacylglycerol kinase subfamily. Diacylglycerol kinases regulate the intracellular concentration of diacylglycerol through its phosphorylation, producing phosphatidic acid. The specific role of the enzyme encoded by this gene is undetermined, however, it may play a crucial role in the production of phosphatidic acid in the retina or in recessive forms of retinal degeneration. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DGKI Gene

DGKI (Diacylglycerol Kinase Iota) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include NAD+ kinase activity and diacylglycerol kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is DGKH.

Tocris Summary for DGKI 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.
