GeneCards Summary for PIK3C3 Gene
PIK3C3 (Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase Catalytic Subunit Type 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PIK3C3 include myopathy, centronuclear. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by Rho GTPases. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and binding. An important paralog of this gene is PIK3CB.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PIK3C3 Gene
Catalytic subunit of the PI3K complex that mediates formation of phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate; different complex forms are believed to play a role in multiple membrane trafficking pathways: PI3KC3-C1 is involved in initiation of autophagosomes and PI3KC3-C2 in maturation of autophagosomes and endocytosis. Involved in regulation of degradative endocytic trafficking and required for the abcission step in cytokinesis, probably in the context of PI3KC3-C2 (PubMed:20643123, PubMed:20208530). Involved in the transport of lysosomal enzyme precursors to lysosomes. Required for transport from early to late endosomes (By similarity).
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.
