External Ids for FN3K Gene
A high concentration of glucose can result in non-enzymatic oxidation of proteins by reaction of glucose and lysine residues (glycation). Proteins modified in this way, fructosamines, are less active or functional. This gene encodes an enzyme which catalyzes the phosphorylation of fructosamines which may result in deglycation.

GeneCards Summary for FN3K Gene
FN3K (Fructosamine 3 Kinase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FN3K include hyperglycemia. GO annotations related to this gene include fructosamine-3-kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is FN3KRP.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FN3K Gene
May initiate a process leading to the deglycation of fructoselysine and of glycated proteins. May play a role in the phosphorylation of 1-deoxy-1-morpholinofructose (DMF), fructoselysine, fructoseglycine, fructose and glycated lysozyme
