AMPK alpha 1/PRKAA1 Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

AMPK alpha 1/PRKAA1 cDNA / Gene Overview

PRKAA1 gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 5p13.1. The PRKAA1 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, A.thaliana, rice, and frog.233 organisms have orthologs with human gene PRKAA1.

AMPK alpha 1/PRKAA1 cDNA / Gene Function

The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the ser/thr protein kinase family. It is the catalytic subunit of the 5'-prime-AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). AMPK is a cellular energy sensor conserved in all eukaryotic cells. The kinase activity of AMPK is activated by the stimuli that increase the cellular AMP/ATP ratio. AMPK regulates the activities of a number of key metabolic enzymes through phosphorylation. It protects cells from stresses that cause ATP depletion by switching off ATP-consuming biosynthetic pathways. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been observed.
