Diacylglycerol kinase (EC 18.104.22.168) (DAGK) is an enzyme that catalyzes the
formation of phosphatidic acid from diacylglycerol and ATP, an important step
in phospholipid biosynthesis. In bacteria DAGK is very small (13 to 15 Kd)
membrane protein which seems to contain three transmembrane domains .
As a signature for bacterial DAGK, we selected the best conserved region, a
stretch of 12 residues which are located in a cytoplasmic loop between the
second and third transmembrane domains.
