FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the eukaryotic diacylglycerol kinase family. It acts as a modulator that competes with protein kinase C for the second messenger diacylglycerol in intracellular signaling pathways. It also plays an important role in the resynthesis of phosphatidylinositols and phosphorylating diacylglycerol to phosphatidic acid. Alternative splicing occurs at this locus and four transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous mutation of this gene results in impaired induction of T cell anergy. T cells stimulated in anergy producing conditions show increased proliferation and interleukin 2 production. Mice homozygous for a transgenic gene disruption exhibit male infertility.
