Summaries for RIPK4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RIPK4 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a serine/threonine protein kinase that interacts with protein kinase C-delta. The encoded protein can also activate NFkappaB and is required for keratinocyte differentiation. This kinase undergoes autophosphorylation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for RIPK4 Gene

RIPK4 (Receptor Interacting Serine/Threonine Kinase 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RIPK4 include Popliteal Pterygium Syndrome, Lethal Type and Popliteal Pterygium Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Wnt / Hedgehog / Notch and NF-kappaB 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 ANKK1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RIPK4 Gene

  • Involved in stratified epithelial development. It is a direct transcriptional target of TP63. Plays a role in NF-kappa-B activation.
