Previous GeneCards Identifiers for DYRK3 Gene
This gene product belongs to the DYRK family of dual-specificity protein kinases that catalyze autophosphorylation on serine/threonine and tyrosine residues. The members of this family share structural similarity, however, differ in their substrate specificity, suggesting their involvement in different cellular functions. The encoded protein has been shown to autophosphorylate on tyrosine residue and catalyze phosphorylation of histones H3 and H2B in vitro. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for DYRK3 Gene
DYRK3 (Dual Specificity Tyrosine Phosphorylation Regulated Kinase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. 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 DYRK2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DYRK3 Gene
Negative regulator of EPO-dependent erythropoiesis, may place an upper limit on red cell production during stress erythropoiesis. Inhibits cell death due to cytokine withdrawal in hematopoietic progenitor cells. May act by regulating CREB/CRE signaling.
