Gene: Dgka (diacylglycerol kinase, alpha) Mus musculus
Symbol: Dgka
Name: diacylglycerol kinase, alpha
RGD ID: 732761
Description: Exhibits diacylglycerol kinase activity and phospholipid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in glycerolipid metabolic process; intracellular signal transduction; and lipid phosphorylation. Localizes to cytosol and plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cranial ganglion; integumental system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human DGKA (diacylglycerol kinase alpha); PARTICIPATES IN D-glycericacidemia pathway; familial lipoprotein lipase deficiency pathway; glycerol kinase deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1-octadec-9-enoylglycero-3-phosphate; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
