Diacylglycerol kinase, zeta

DGKzeta, Diacylglycerol kinase zeta
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the eukaryotic diacylglycerol kinase family. It may attenuate protein kinase C activity by regulating diacylglycerol levels in intracellular signaling cascade and signal transduction. Alternative splicing occurs at this locus and multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010] (from NCBI)

Review
Wan et al., Durham, United States. In Immunol Rev, 2008
In mast cells, DGKzeta plays differential roles in their activation by promoting degranulation but attenuating cytokine production following engagement of the high affinity receptor for immunoglobulin E. In dendritic cells and macrophages, DGKzeta positively regulates Toll-like receptor-induced proinflammatory cytokine production through its product PA and is critical for host defense against Toxoplasma gondii infection.
