Summaries for PKN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PKN1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the protein kinase C superfamily. This kinase is activated by Rho family of small G proteins and may mediate the Rho-dependent signaling pathway. This kinase can be activated by phospholipids and by limited proteolysis. The 3-phosphoinositide dependent protein kinase-1 (PDPK1/PDK1) is reported to phosphorylate this kinase, which may mediate insulin signals to the actin cytoskeleton. The proteolytic activation of this kinase by caspase-3 or related proteases during apoptosis suggests its role in signal transduction related to apoptosis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been observed. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PKN1 Gene

PKN1 (Protein Kinase N1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and PI-3K cascade. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and protein kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PRKCB.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PKN1 Gene

  • PKC-related serine/threonine-protein kinase involved in various processes such as regulation of the intermediate filaments of the actin cytoskeleton, cell migration, tumor cell invasion and transcription regulation. Regulates the cytoskeletal network by phosphorylating proteins such as VIM and neurofilament proteins NEFH, NEFL and NEFM, leading to inhibit their polymerization. Phosphorylates Ser-575, Ser-637 and Ser-669 of MAPT/Tau, lowering its ability to bind to microtubules, resulting in disruption of tubulin assembly. Acts as a key coactivator of androgen receptor (ANDR)-dependent transcription, by being recruited to ANDR target genes and specifically mediating phosphorylation of Thr-11 of histone H3 (H3T11ph), a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation that promotes demethylation of histone H3 Lys-9 (H3K9me) by KDM4C/JMJD2C. Phosphorylates HDAC5, HDAC7 and HDAC9, leading to impair their import in the nucleus. Phosphorylates Thr-38 of PPP1R14A, Ser-159, Ser-163 and Ser-170 of MARCKS, and GFAP. Able to phosphorylate RPS6 in vitro.

Function for PKN1 Gene

Molecular function for PKN1 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot BiophysicochemicalProperties: Kinetic parameters: KM=20.6 uM for HDAC5 {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20188095};
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity: ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation: Kinase activity is activated upon binding to Rho proteins (RHOA, RHOB and RAC1). Activated by lipids, particularly cardiolipin and to a lesser extent by other acidic phospholipids. Activated by caspase-3 (CASP3) cleavage during apoptosis. Two specific sites, Thr-774 (activation loop of the kinase domain) and Ser-916 (turn motif), need to be phosphorylated for its full activation.
