Official Full Name
fructosamine 3 kinase related protein
A high concentration of glucose can result in non-enzymatic oxidation of proteins by reaction of glucose and lysine;residues (glycation). Proteins modified in this way are less active or functional. This gene encodes an enzyme which;catalyzes the phosphorylation of psicosamines and ribulosamines compared to the neighboring gene which encodes a;highly similar enzyme, fructosamine-3-kinase, which has different substrate specificity. The activity of both enzymes;may result in deglycation of proteins to restore their function. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript;variants.
