Gene: PIK3C2A (phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase catalytic subunit type 2 alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PIK3C2A
Name: phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase catalytic subunit type 2 alpha
Description: Predicted to have 1-phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase activity and 1-phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase activity. Involved in endocytosis; positive regulation of autophagy; and positive regulation of cell migration involved in sprouting angiogenesis. Localizes to several cellular components, including nucleoplasm; plasma membrane; and vesicle. Biomarker of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: C2-containing phosphatidylinositol kinase; CPK; DKFZp686L193; MGC142218; OCSKD; phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate 3-kinase C2 domain-containing subunit alpha; phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase C2 domain-containing subunit alpha; phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 3-kinase, catalytic subunit type 2 alpha; phosphoinositide 3-kinase-C2-alpha; phosphoinositide-3-kinase, class 2, alpha polypeptide; PI3-K-C2(ALPHA); PI3-K-C2A; PI3K-C2-alpha; PI3K-C2alpha; ptdIns-3-kinase C2 subunit alpha
