Summaries for PRKD3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRKD3 Gene

  • This gene belongs to the multigene protein kinase D family of serine/threonine kinases, which bind diacylglycerol and phorbol esters. Members of this family are characterized by an N-terminal regulatory domain comprised of a tandem repeat of cysteine-rich zinc-finger motifs and a pleckstrin domain. The C-terminal region contains the catalytic domain and is distantly related to calcium-regulated kinases. Catalytic activity of this enzyme promotes its nuclear localization. This protein has been implicated in a variety of functions including negative regulation of human airway epithelial barrier formation, growth regulation of breast and prostate cancer cells, and vesicle trafficking.

GeneCards Summary for PRKD3 Gene

PRKD3 (Protein Kinase D3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are NFAT and Cardiac Hypertrophy and Beta-Adrenergic Signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PRKD1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PRKD3 Gene

  • Converts transient diacylglycerol (DAG) signals into prolonged physiological effects, downstream of PKC. Involved in resistance to oxidative stress (By similarity).

Tocris Summary for PRKD3 Gene

  • The protein kinase D (PKD) family of serine/threonine protein kinases has three members: PKD1-3. They occupy a unique position in signaling pathways initiated by diacylglycerol and protein kinase C. PKDs are involved in cell survival, migration, differentiation and proliferation.

Function for PRKD3 Gene

Molecular function for PRKD3 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation:
Activated by DAG and phorbol esters. Phorbol-ester/DAG-type domains 1 and 2 bind both DAG and phorbol ester with high affinity and mediate translocation to the cell membrane. Autophosphorylation of Ser-735 and phosphorylation of Ser-731 by PKC relieves auto-inhibition by the PH domain.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Converts transient diacylglycerol (DAG) signals into prolonged physiological effects, downstream of PKC. Involved in resistance to oxidative stress (By similarity).
