  • FunctionCatalyzes the conversion of oxaloacetate (OAA) to phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP), the rate-limiting step in the metabolic pathway that produces glucose from lactate and other precursors derived from the citric acid cycle.
  • PathwayCarbohydrate biosynthesis; gluconeogenesis.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in PCK2 are the cause of mitochondrial phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase deficiency (M-PEPCKD) [MIM:261650]. A metabolic disorder resulting from impaired gluconeogenesis. It is a rare disease with less than 10 cases reported in the literature. Clinical characteristics include hypotonia, hepatomegaly, failure to thrive, lactic acidosis and hypoglycemia. Autoposy reveals fatty infiltration of both the liver and kidneys. The disorder is transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase [GTP] family.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion.

This statement is based on the total lack of overlap between the chosen immunizing peptide for PCK2 and any part of PCK1. Since the antibody is affinity purified using the immunizing peptide, it is reasonable to except that ab40843 will not cross react...
