Summaries for IPPK Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IPPK Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a kinase that phosphorylates position 2 of inositol-1,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate to form inositol-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexakisphosphate (InsP6). InsP6 has a variety of functions, including stimulation of DNA repair, endocytosis, and mRNA export. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for IPPK Gene

IPPK (Inositol 1,3,4,5,6-Pentakisphosphate 2-Kinase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IPPK include atrial heart septal defect and heart septal defect. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include inositol pentakisphosphate 2-kinase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IPPK Gene

  • Phosphorylates Ins(1,3,4,5,6)P5 at position 2 to form Ins(1,2,3,4,5,6)P6 (InsP6 or phytate). InsP6 is involved in many processes such as mRNA export, non-homologous end-joining, endocytosis, ion channel regulation. It also protects cells from TNF-alpha-induced apoptosis.
