Summaries for DGKA Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DGKA Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the eukaryotic diacylglycerol kinase family. It acts as a modulator that competes with protein kinase C for the second messenger diacylglycerol in intracellular signaling pathways. It also plays an important role in the resynthesis of phosphatidylinositols and phosphorylating diacylglycerol to phosphatidic acid. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2017]

GeneCards Summary for DGKA Gene

DGKA (Diacylglycerol Kinase Alpha) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Effects of PIP2 hydrolysis and Glycerolipid metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and NAD+ kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is DGKB.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DGKA Gene

  • Upon cell stimulation converts the second messenger diacylglycerol into phosphatidate, initiating the resynthesis of phosphatidylinositols and attenuating protein kinase C activity.

Tocris Summary for DGKA 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'
