Summaries for IP6K3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IP6K3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the inositol phosphokinase (IPK) family. This protein is likely responsible for the conversion of inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6) to diphosphoinositol pentakisphosphate (InsP7/PP-InsP5). It may also convert 1,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate (InsP5) to PP-InsP4. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding the same protein.[provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]

GeneCards Summary for IP6K3 Gene

IP6K3 (Inositol Hexakisphosphate Kinase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Glucose / Energy Metabolism and Inositol phosphate metabolism (REACTOME). GO annotations related to this gene include inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate 3-kinase activity and inositol hexakisphosphate 1-kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is IP6K2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IP6K3 Gene

  • Converts inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6) to diphosphoinositol pentakisphosphate (InsP7/PP-InsP5). Converts 1,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate (InsP5) to PP-InsP4.
