PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • a N terminal pleckstrin homology domain (PH)
  • two zinc-dependent phorbol-ester and DAG binding domains
  • one PH domain
  • one sterile alpha motif (SAM) domain, binding zinc at multiple sites, and driving the organization of the DGKD SAM into large sheets of polymers
  • mono polymer homomer , octamer

    basic FUNCTION
  • converting diacylglycerol to phosphatidic acid
  • negatively regulating ER-to-Golgi traffic by selectively inhibiting the formation of ER export sites without significantly affecting retrograde transport
  • DGKdelta regulates EGFR by modulating PKC signaling
  • involved in central nervous system development and function
  • specifically regulates AKT1 signaling downstream of potentially oncogenic RTKs
  • markedly increases lipid synthesis, at least in part as a result of promoting the de novo synthesis of fatty acids
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling signal transduction
    a component heterodimerizing with DGK
    INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
  • zinc may play an important role in the assembly and physiology of the DGKD isozyme
  • protein
  • DGKD and PRKCA modulate the levels of ubiquitinated EGFR through AKT1 and USP8
  • cell & other
    REGULATION
    induced by phorboester (isoform 2)
    Other suppressed by phorboester (isoform 1)
    polymerization of DGKD regulates the activity of the enzyme by sequestering DGKD in an inactive cellular location
