Diacylglycerol kinase gamma (DGKG) is a member of DGK type I subfamily which have EF-hand motifs and two cysteine-rich regions (C1 domain) in the regulatory domain. These enzymes catalyze the phosphorylation of diacylglycerol, a fundamental lipid second messenger that activates numerous proteins such as protein kinase C isoforms and RAS guanyl nucleotide-releasing proteins and some transient receptor potential channels. (1) DKAG has been associated with malignancies with its role as tumor suppressor in colorectal cancer. (2) DGKG is also implicated in regulation of cell cycle regulation. (3)
