Alternative splicing generates a diacylglycerol kinase α transcript that acts as a dominant-negative modulator of superoxide production in localized aggressive periodontitis.


BACKGROUND Diacylglycerol (DAG), levels of which are tightly regulated by diacylglycerol kinases (DGKs), is a lipid mediator linked to key biologic functions. Members of the DGK family undergo alternative splicing, generating the protein diversity necessary to control different intracellular DAG pools. DGKα function is altered in polymorphonuclear… (More)
