GSK3B Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

GSK3B cDNA / Gene Overview

GSK3B gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 3q13.33. The GSK3B gene is conserved in chimpanzee, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, C.elegans, A.thaliana, rice, and frog.222 organisms have orthologs with human gene GSK3B.

GSK3B cDNA / Gene Function

The protein encoded by this gene is a serine-threonine kinase belonging to the glycogen synthase kinase subfamily. It is a negative regulator of glucose homeostasis and is involved in energy metabolism, inflammation, ER-stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, and apoptotic pathways. Defects in this gene have been associated with Parkinson disease and Alzheimer disease. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2017]
