Human Gene CHKA (ENST00000356135.9) from GENCODE V41
Description: Homo sapiens choline kinase alpha (CHKA), transcript variant 2, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_212469) RefSeq Summary (NM_212469): The major pathway for the biosynthesis of phosphatidylcholine occurs via the CDP-choline pathway. The protein encoded by this gene is the initial enzyme in the sequence and may play a regulatory role. The encoded protein also catalyzes the phosphorylation of ethanolamine. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]. Gencode Transcript: ENST00000356135.9 Gencode Gene: ENSG00000110721.12 Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg38 chr11:68,053,820-68,121,444 Size: 67,625 Total Exon Count: 11 Strand: - Coding Region Position: hg38 chr11:68,053,988-68,121,177 Size: 67,190 Coding Exon Count: 11
ID:CHKA_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Choline kinase alpha; Short=CK; EC=22.214.171.124; AltName: Full=CHETK-alpha; AltName: Full=Ethanolamine kinase; Short=EK; EC=126.96.36.199; FUNCTION: Has a key role in phospholipid biosynthesis and may contribute to tumor cell growth. Catalyzes the first step in phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis. Contributes to phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis. Phosphorylates choline and ethanolamine. Has higher activity with choline. CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: ATP + choline = ADP + phosphocholine. CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: ATP + ethanolamine = ADP + O- phosphoethanolamine. BIOPHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES: Kinetic parameters: KM=0.2 mM for choline; KM=0.4 mM for ATP; KM=12 mM for ethanolamine; PATHWAY: Phospholipid metabolism; phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis; phosphocholine from choline: step 1/1. PATHWAY: Phospholipid metabolism; phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis; phosphatidylethanolamine from ethanolamine: step 1/3. SUBUNIT: Heterodimer with CHKB (By similarity). Homodimer. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the choline/ethanolamine kinase family.

The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on P35790
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
