Gene information for PDK4 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID5166
Official gene symbolPDK4
Full namepyruvate dehydrogenase kinase, isozyme 4
Gene summaryThis gene is a member of the PDK/BCKDK protein kinase family and encodes a mitochondrial protein with a histidine kinase domain. This protein is located in the matrix of the mitrochondria and inhibits the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex by phosphorylating one of its subunits, thereby contributing to the regulation of glucose metabolism. Expression of this gene is regulated by glucocorticoids, retinoic acid and insulin. [provided by RefSeq]
