GenAge entry for GSK3A (Homo sapiens)

Entry selected based on evidence directly linking the gene product to ageing in a mammalian model organism

Gene name (HAGRID: 295)

HGNC symbol
GSK3A 
Aliases
 
Common name
glycogen synthase kinase 3 alpha 

Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence directly linking the gene product to ageing in a mammalian model organism
Description

GSK3A is involved in the control of several other proteins, including JUN, and signaling pathways like WNT and PI3K. It has been associated with Alzheimer disease [3426]. In mice, knockout of GSK3A results in a phenotype resembling accelerated ageing, including premature death, cardiac abnormalities and sarcopenia [3256].
