Metabolic pathways map for SMART domain DAGKa


Diacylglycerol kinase accessory domain (presumed)

SMART accession number:SM000045
Description:Diacylglycerol (DAG) is a second messenger that acts as a protein kinase C activator. DAG can be produced from the hydrolysis of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) by a phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C and by the degradation of phosphatidylcholine (PC) by a phospholipase C or the concerted actions of phospholipase D and phosphatidate phosphohydrolase. This domain might either be an accessory domain or else contribute to the catalytic domain. Bacterial homologues are known.

Pathways containing proteins with DAGKa domain are shown in BLUE, and edges containing orthologs which have DAGKa domain are shown in RED.
