    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in gluconeogenesis
  • forming phosphoenolpyruvate by decarboxylation of oxaloacetate
  • catalyses the irreversible conversion of oxaloacetate to phosphoenolpyruvate, an important initial step in hepatic gluconeogenesis
  • its enzymatic activity is half that of primary hepatocytes and is localized exclusively to the mitochondria
  • strong candidate to link mtGTP synthesis with insulin release through anaplerotic phosphoenolpyruvate cycling
  • possible role for PCK2 and G6PC in the DNA damage response
  • CELLULAR PROCESS

    REGULATION
    activated by ER stress triggers suppression of AMPK while increasing CEBPB and CREB1 expression which activates PCK2 gene transcription
    induced by glucagon
    repressed by insulin
