GSK3B

Glycogen synthase kinase 3 beta known as GSK3B, is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the GSK3B gene. In mice, the enzyme is encoded by the GSK-3β gene. Abnormal regulation and expression of GSK3β is associated with an increased susceptibility towards bipolar disorder. Glycogen synthase kinase-3 is a proline-directed serine-threonine kinase, identified as a phosphorylating and an inactivating agent of glycogen synthase. Two isoforms and beta, show a high degree of amino acid homology. GSK3B is involved in energy metabolism, neuronal cell development, body pattern formation, it might be a new therapeutic target for ischemic stroke. Homozygous disruption of the GSK-3β locus in mice results in embryonic lethality during mid-gestation; this lethality phenotype could be rescued by inhibition of tumor necrosis factor. Two SNPs at this gene, rs334558 and rs3755557, are associated with efficacy of lithium treatment in bipolar disorder. Pharmacological inhibition of ERK1/2 restores GSK3β activity and protein synthesis levels in a model of tuberous sclerosis.

GSK3B has been shown to interact with: KIAA1211L Glycogen synthase kinase 3 PDBe-KB provides an overview of all the structure information available in the PDB for Human Glycogen synthase kinase-3 beta
