first protein kinase C conserved region 1 (C1 domain) found in diacylglycerol kinase delta (DAG kinase delta) and similar proteins
Diacylglycerol (DAG) kinase (EC 126.96.36.199) is a lipid kinase that phosphorylates diacylglycerol to form phosphatidic acid. DAG kinase delta, also called 130 kDa diacylglycerol kinase, or diglyceride kinase delta (DGK-delta), is a residential lipid kinase in the endoplasmic reticulum. It promotes lipogenesis and is involved in triglyceride biosynthesis. It is classified as a type II DAG kinase (DGK), containing pleckstrin homology (PH) and sterile alpha motifs (SAM) domains, in addition to C1 and catalytic domains that are present in all DGKs. The SAM domain mediates oligomerization of type II DGKs. DAG kinase delta contains two copies of the C1 domain. This model corresponds to the first one. The C1 domain is a cysteine-rich zinc binding domain that does not bind DNA nor possess structural similarity to conventional zinc finger domains; it contains two separate Zn(2+)-binding sites.
