Scientific Background: Diacylglycerol kinase zeta (DAG kinase zeta) is a member of class IV diacylglycerol kinase family, which contains two zinc fingers, an ATP binding site, and four ankyrin repeats with the MARCKS phosphorylation site, and exhibits the preference for 1,2-diacylglycerols but not for long chain diacylglycerols (1). DGK zeta regulates Ras activation via terminating the diacylglycerol signaling induced RasGRP (2). DGK zeta deficient mice were hyper-responsive to T cell receptor stimulation (3). Also, increased expression levels of DGK zeta promotes Rho GTPase activity and cancer cell invasion (4).
