  • Function

    Critical to the modulation of cardiac contractility and to the maintenance of proper cardiac conduction activity. Phosphorylates phospholamban.
  • Tissue specificity

    Most isoforms are expressed in many tissues including heart, skeletal muscle, liver and brain, except for isoform 2 which is only found in the heart and skeletal muscle, and isoform 14 which is only found in the brain, with high levels in the striatum, cerebellar cortex and pons.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in DMPK are the cause of dystrophia myotonica type 1 (DM1) [MIM:160900]; also known as Steinert disease. A muscular disorder characterized by myotonia, muscle wasting in the distal extremities, cataract, hypogonadism, defective endocrine functions, male baldness and cardiac arrhythmias. Note=The causative mutation is a CTG expansion in the 3'-UTR of the DMPK gene. A length exceeding 50 CTG repeats is pathogenic, while normal individuals have 5 to 37 repeats. Intermediate alleles with 35-49 triplets are not disease-causing but show instability in intergenerational transmissions. Disease severity varies with the number of repeats: mildly affected persons have 50 to 150 repeats, patients with classic DM have 100 to 1,000 repeats, and those with congenital onset can have more than 2,000 repeats.
  • Sequence similarities
