Summaries for DGKB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DGKB Gene

  • Diacylglycerol kinases (DGKs) are regulators of the intracellular concentration of the second messenger diacylglycerol (DAG) and thus play a key role in cellular processes. Nine mammalian isotypes have been identified, which are encoded by separate genes. Mammalian DGK isozymes contain a conserved catalytic (kinase) domain and a cysteine-rich domain (CRD). The protein encoded by this gene is a diacylglycerol kinase, beta isotype. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for DGKB Gene

DGKB (Diacylglycerol Kinase Beta) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Inositol phosphate metabolism (KEGG). GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and diacylglycerol kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is DGKG.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DGKB Gene

  • Exhibits high phosphorylation activity for long-chain diacylglycerols.

Tocris Summary for DGKB Gene

  • Diacylglycerol kinases (DGKs) are a group of ten enzymes that metabolize 1,2,diacylglycerol (DAG) to produce phosphatidic acid (PA). They all contain a conserved C'-terminal catalytic domain and two cysteine-rich Zn2+-finger motifs with varied regulatory domains.
