Biochem/physiol Actions

DMPK (or Myotonic Dystrophy Protein Kinase) is a serine-threonine kinase that is closely related to other kinases that interact with members of the Rho family of small GTPases. DMPK protein has a leucine-rich domain at the N-terminus, a serine/threonine kinase domain in the middle, and a hydrophobic region at the C-terminus. The N-terminus of DMPK plays an important role in DMPK kinase activity, and the C-terminus of DMPK determines the intracellular localization of the protein. Myotonic dystrophy type 1 is an autosomal dominant disease caused by a trinucleotide repeat-expansion, cytosine-thymine-guanine (CTG)n, in the 3′ untranslated region of DMPK.
