Protein Information
Name Pkdcc {ECO:0000312|MGI:MGI:2147077}
Function Secreted tyrosine-protein kinase that mediates phosphorylation of extracellular proteins and endogenous proteins in the secretory pathway, which is essential for patterning at organogenesis stages. Mediates phosphorylation of MMP1, MMP13, MMP14, MMP19 and ERP29 (PubMed:25171405). May also have serine/threonine protein kinase activity (PubMed:25171405). Required for longitudinal bone growth through regulation of chondrocyte differentiation (PubMed:19097194, PubMed:23792766). May be indirectly involved in protein transport from the Golgi apparatus to the plasma membrane (PubMed:19465597). Probably plays a role in platelets: rapidly and quantitatively secreted from platelets in response to stimulation of platelet degranulation (PubMed:25171405).
Cellular Location Secreted. Golgi apparatus. Note=Both secreted and present in the Golgi apparatus.
Tissue Location Strongly expressed in adult heart, liver and testis with weak expression in brain, spleen, lung and thymus. In the humerus, strongly expressed in early flat proliferative chondrocytes. In the embryo, expressed in the anterior visceral endoderm and anterior primitive streak at E6.5. At E7.5, expressed in the anterior definitive endoderm (ADE) and anterior mesoderm but not in the notochord. At E8.0, expressed in the ADE and anterior embryonic mesoderm. At E8.5, expressed more broadly in anterior tissues and at the midline of the neural plate in the midbrain region as well as the lateral margins of the neural plate posterior to the metencephalic region. Also weakly expressed in the anterior mesenchyme. At E9.5, strongest expression in branchial arches and limb buds. During mid-gestation, expression continues in mesenchymal cells, particularly in areas where these cells condense.

VLK Antibody: VLK was identified as a novel protein kinase that was induced after the differentiation of cultured embryonic stem cells into mesendoderm. It has no homologs in invertebrates, but is highly conserved in vertebrate species although it does not belong to any known protein kinase groups. VLK is initially expressed in E-cadherin-positive anterior visceral endoderm and mesendoderm, but its expression is later confined to E-cadherin-negative mesenchyme. It is enriched in the Golgi apparatus and is thought to regulate the rate of protein export from the Golgi. Targeted disruption of VLK in mice leads to a defect in lung development and neonatal lethality. It has been suggested that mutations in VLK may be associated with the allergic condition atopy.
