|Other Names||Diacylglycerol kinase zeta, DAG kinase zeta, Diglyceride kinase zeta, DGK-zeta, DGKZ, DAGK6|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8060a was selected from the N-term region of human DGKZ . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Displays a strong preference for 1,2-diacylglycerols over 1,3-diacylglycerols, but lacks substrate specificity among molecular species of long chain diacylglycerols. Isoform 2 but not isoform 1 regulates RASGRP1 activity.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus Cell membrane|
|Tissue Location||Highest levels in brain, and substantial levels in skeletal muscle, heart, and pancreas. Isoform 1 is predominantly expressed in muscle|

Diacylglycerol (DAG) is an allosteric activator of protein kinase C. DAG also participates in regulating RAS and RHO family proteins by activating the guanine nucleotide exchange factors VAV and RASGRP1. DAG is also involved in the synthesis of phospholipids and triacylglycerols. Tight regulation of DAG levels is achieved via DAG kinases (DGKs), which remove DAG by phosphorylate it to phosphatidic acid. Several mammalian isozymes of DAGK have been identified
