25921290 Redundant and specialized roles for diacylglycerol kinases alpha and zeta in the control of T cell functions.
25450975 This study shows that DGKzeta knockdown facilitates degradation of IkappaB, followed by nuclear translocation of NF-kappaB p65 subunit.
24646293 Elevated DGKzeta expression contributes to increased Rho GTPase activation and the enhanced motility of metastatic cancer cells.
23723068 Data indicate that after P2Y6 receptor stimulation both phospholipase D (PLD) and DGKzeta enzymes are responsible for producing phosphatidic acid (PA).
22895365 DGK regulates melanogenesis via modulation of the posttranslational processing of tyrosinase, which may be related with the protein degradation machinery.
22271650 Antigen-specific CD8-positive T cells from DGKzeta-deficient transgenic mice show enhanced expansion and increased cytokine production after lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus infection, yet DGK-deficient memory CD8+ T cells exhibit impaired expansion.

21937721 DGK-zeta translocated rapidly to the plasma membrane at early stages of immunological synapse (IS) formation independent of enzyme activity; study highlights a DGKzeta-specific function for local diacylglycerol metabolism at the IS and offers new clues to its mode of regulation
21194521 Data show that Diacylglycerol that 2-arachidonoyl glycerol is a very poor substrate for either the epsilon or the zeta isoforms of diacylglycerol kinases.
19308020 None of SNPs of diacylglycerol kinase zeta tested showed association with bipolar disorder in Sardinian sample.
19211846 In DGKzeta-deficient fibroblasts PAK1 phosphorylation and Rac1-RhoGDI dissociation were attenuated, leading to reduced Rac1 activation after platelet-derived growth factor stimulation.
18694729 PKD activation is induced by DGKzeta, suggesting DGK is an upstream regulator of oxidative stress-induced activation of the PKD signaling pathway in intestinal epithelial cells.
18004883 2,3-dioleoylglycerol binds to a site on the alpha and zeta isoforms of diacylglycerol kinase that is exposed as a consequence of the substrate binding to the active site.
16286473 DGKzeta may act in vivo as a downstream effector of pRB to regulate nuclear levels of diacylglycerol and phosphatidic acid
