Protein Function N-acetylglucosamine kinase (NAGK) is a good candidate for promoting dynein activation. Specifically, NAGK interacts with dynein light chain roadblock type 1 (DYNLRB1) to promote dynein functions during mitosis and axonal and dendritic growth.
PTMs N-acetylation at Alanine
Site(s) of PTM(s)

N-glycosylation, O-glycosylation,
Predicted Disorder Regions 1-15, 30-41, 92-96
DisProt Annotation
TM Helix Prediction No TM helices
Additional Comments  NAGK overexpression significantly reduced numbers of dysfunctional spherical mitochondria and increased numbers of ‘thread-like’ healthy mitochondria in our HD(Huntington’s disease) cellular model, which suggests NAGK promoted ALP activity by dynein activation and consequently reduced ROS levels and mitochondrial damage.
