Summaries for PRKACG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRKACG Gene

  • Cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) consists of two catalytic subunits and a regulatory subunit dimer. This gene encodes the gamma form of its catalytic subunit. The gene is intronless and is thought to be a retrotransposon derived from the gene for the alpha form of the PKA catalytic subunit. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PRKACG Gene

PRKACG (Protein Kinase CAMP-Activated Catalytic Subunit Gamma) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PRKACG include Bleeding Disorder, Platelet-Type, 19 and Severe Autosomal Recessive Macrothrombocytopenia. Among its related pathways are Platelet activation and HTLV-I infection. 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 PRKACA.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PRKACG Gene

  • Phosphorylates a large number of substrates in the cytoplasm and the nucleus.

Tocris Summary for PRKACG Gene

  • Protein kinase A (PKA, aka cAMP-dependent protein kinase) is involved in the regulation of lipid and glucose metabolism and is a component of the signal transduction mechanism of certain GPCRs. PKA is composed of two regulatory subunits and two catalytic subunits.
