|Function||Serine/threonine kinase which plays an important role in the regulation of electrolyte homeostasis, cell signaling, survival and proliferation. Acts as an activator and inhibitor of sodium-coupled chloride cotransporters and potassium-coupled chloride cotransporters respectively. Activates SLC12A1, SLC12A2, SLC12A3, SCNN1A, SCNN1B, SCNN1D and SGK1. Inhibits SLC12A4, SLC12A5, SLC12A6 and SLC12A7. Phosphorylates WNK4. Increases Ca(2+) influx mediated by TRPV5 and TRPV6 by enhancing their membrane expression level via a kinase-dependent pathway. Inhibits KCNJ1 by decreasing its expression at the cell membrane in a non- catalytic manner.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in pancreatic duct (PubMed:21317537).|

WNK3 (WNK lysine deficient protein kinase 3) belongs to the serine/threonine protein kinase family. It lacks the almost invariant catalytic lysine in subdomain II, which is important for binding ATP in the catalytic site. A conserved lysine in subdomain I is thought to provide this function. WNK3 activates Na-(K)-Cl cotransporters by increasing their phosphorylation and appears to be a crucial component of the kinase/phosphatase signaling pathway that coordinately regulates the Cl? influx and efflux branches of the SLC12A cotransporter family.
