Summaries for WNK3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WNK3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein belonging to the 'with no lysine' family of serine-threonine protein kinases. These family members lack the catalytic lysine in subdomain II, and instead have a conserved lysine in subdomain I. This family member functions as a positive regulator of the transcellular Ca2+ transport pathway, and it plays a role in the increase of cell survival in a caspase-3-dependent pathway. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for WNK3 Gene

WNK3 (WNK Lysine Deficient Protein Kinase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Diuretics Pathway, Pharmacodynamics and Ion channel transport. GO annotations related to this gene include protein serine/threonine kinase activity and protein kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NRBP1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WNK3 Gene

  • Serine/threonine kinase which plays an important role in the regulation of electrolyte homeostasis, cell signaling, survival and proliferation. Acts as an activator and inhibitor of sodium-coupled chloride cotransporters and potassium-coupled chloride cotransporters respectively. Phosphorylates WNK4. Regulates the phosphorylation of SLC12A1 and SLC12A2. Increases Ca(2+) influx mediated by TRPV5 and TRPV6 by enhancing their membrane expression level via a kinase-dependent pathway. Inhibits the activity of KCNJ1 by decreasing its expression at the cell membrane in a non-catalytic manner

  • Isoform 1, isoform 2, isoform 3 and isoform 4 stimulate the activity of SLC12A1, SLC12A2 and SLC12A3 and inhibit the activity of SLC12A4, SLC12A5, SLC12A6 and SLC12A7. According to PubMed:19470686, isoform 1 inhibits the activity of SLC12A3

Function for WNK3 Gene

Molecular function for WNK3 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation:
Activation requires autophosphorylation of Ser-308. Phosphorylation of Ser-304 also promotes increased activity (By similarity). Kinase activity is inhibited by WNK4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Serine/threonine kinase which plays an important role in the regulation of electrolyte homeostasis, cell signaling, survival and proliferation. Acts as an activator and inhibitor of sodium-coupled chloride cotransporters and potassium-coupled chloride cotransporters respectively. Phosphorylates WNK4. Regulates the phosphorylation of SLC12A1 and SLC12A2. Increases Ca(2+) influx mediated by TRPV5 and TRPV6 by enhancing their membrane expression level via a kinase-dependent pathway.
