DGKA Upon cell stimulation converts the second messenger diacylglycerol into phosphatidate, initiating the resynthesis of phosphatidylinositols and attenuating protein kinase C activity. Belongs to the eukaryotic diacylglycerol kinase family. Lymphocytes and oligodendroglial cells. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
