This gene encodes a protein that is involved as a negative regulator of GSK3-beta in the Wnt signaling pathway. The encoded protein may play a role in the retinoic acid signaling pathway by regulating the functional interactions between GSK3-beta, beta-catenin and cyclin D1, and it regulates the beta-catenin/N-cadherin pool. The encoded protein contains a GSK3-beta interacting domain (GID) in its C-terminus, which is similar to the GID of Axin. The protein also contains an evolutionarily conserved RII-binding domain, which facilitates binding with protein kinase-A and GSK3-beta, enabling its role as an A-kinase anchoring protein. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2012]
GeneCards Summary for GSKIP Gene
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GSKIP Gene
A-kinase anchoring protein for GSK3B and PKA that regulates or facilitates their kinase activity towards their targets (PubMed:27484798, PubMed:25920809, PubMed:16981698). The ternary complex enhances Wnt-induced signaling by facilitating the GSK3B- and PKA-induced phosphorylation of beta-catenin leading to beta-catenin degradation and stabilization respectively (PubMed:27484798, PubMed:16981698). Upon cAMP activation, the ternary complex contributes to neuroprotection against oxidative stress-induced apoptosis by facilitating the PKA-induced phosphorylation of DML1 and PKA-induced inactivation of GSK3B (PubMed:25920809). During neurite outgrowth promotes neuron proliferation; while increases beta-catenin-induced transcriptional activity through GSK3B kinase activity inhibition, reduces N-cadherin level to promote cell cycle progression (PubMed:19830702).
