Summaries for DGKG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DGKG Gene

  • This gene encodes an enzyme that is a member of the type I subfamily of diacylglycerol kinases, which are involved in lipid metabolism. These enzymes generate phosphatidic acid by catalyzing the phosphorylation of diacylglycerol, a fundamental lipid second messenger that activates numerous proteins, including protein kinase C isoforms, Ras guanyl nucleotide-releasing proteins and some transient receptor potential channels. Diacylglycerol kinase gamma has been implicated in cell cycle regulation and in the negative regulation of macrophage differentiation in leukemia cells. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DGKG Gene

DGKG (Diacylglycerol Kinase, Gamma 90kDa) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and diacylglycerol kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is DGKI.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DGKG Gene

  • Reverses the normal flow of glycerolipid biosynthesis by phosphorylating diacylglycerol back to phosphatidic acid

Tocris Summary for DGKG Gene

  • Diacylglycerol kinases (DGKs) are a group of ten enzymes (DGKalpha, DGKbeta, DGKgamma, DGKdelta, DGKepsilon, DGKzeta, DGKeta, DGKtheta, DGKiota and DGKkappa) that metabolize 1,2,diacylglycerol (DAG) to produce phosphatidic acid (PA). They all contain a conserved C'-terminal catalytic domain, two cysteine-rich Zn2+-finger motifs that bind DAG and an ATP-binding site, whilst the regulatory domain varies. DGKs are widely distributed throughout mammalian tissues and different isozymes have different subcellular localizations; some are cytosolic (for example DGKalpha), some are membrane-bound (for example DGKgamma is associated with the Golgi membrane) and some are nuclear (for example DGKzeta. DGKs have diverse biological roles as they participate in signal transduction by modulating levels of DAG in a variety of cellular responses to extracellular stimuli.
