Summaries for PIK3C2G Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PIK3C2G Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) family. PI3-kinases play roles in signaling pathways involved in cell proliferation, oncogenic transformation, cell survival, cell migration, and intracellular protein trafficking. This protein contains a lipid kinase catalytic domain as well as a C-terminal C2 domain, a characteristic of class II PI3-kinases. C2 domains act as calcium-dependent phospholipid binding motifs that mediate translocation of proteins to membranes, and may also mediate protein-protein interactions. This gene may play a role in several diseases, including type II diabetes. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2014]

GeneCards Summary for PIK3C2G Gene

PIK3C2G (Phosphatidylinositol-4-Phosphate 3-Kinase Catalytic Subunit Type 2 Gamma) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and Apoptosis Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PIK3CB.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PIK3C2G Gene

  • Generates phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate (PtdIns3P) and phosphatidylinositol 3,4-bisphosphate (PtdIns(3,4)P2) that act as second messengers. May play a role in SDF1A-stimulated chemotaxis (By similarity).

Tocris Summary for PIK3C2G Gene

  • PI 3-Kinases (phosphoinositide 3-kinases, PI 3-Ks) are a family of lipid kinases capable of phosphorylating the 3'OH of the inositol ring of phosphoinositides. They are responsible for coordinating a diverse range of cell functions including proliferation and survival.
