Gene Detail

Gene Symbol PDK1
Gene Description PDK1, pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase 1, plays a role in metabolism regulation through phosphorylation of pyruvate dehydrogenase, resulting in inhibition of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex, which functions in conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA (PMID: 18541534, PMID: 24904893, PMID: 25868605). PDK1 over expression has been demonstrated in several tumor types, including ovarian cancer and retinoblastoma (PMID: 28617852, PMID: 28505181).
