The Eukaryote Linear Motif resource for Functional Sites in Proteins
Functional site class:
PIKK phosphorylation site
Functional site description:
The phosphoinositide-3-OH-kinase related kinases (PIKKs) are atypical protein kinases exclusive to eukaryotes. The PIKK members are large proteins with Ser/Thr kinase activity serving important roles in DNA repair and DNA damage checkpoints. The three PIKK proteins with repair and checkpoint functions in mammalian cells are: DNA-PK (DNA-dependent protein kinase), ATM (ataxia telangiectasia mutated), and ATR (ATM and Rad3 related).
ELM Description:
The PIKK family member proteins specifically phosphorylate the (ST)Q motif in their substrates. The glutamine adjacent to the target serine-threonine is critical for the substrate recognition.
Pattern: ...([ST])Q..

PI3_PI4_kinase (PF00454) Phosphatidylinositol 3- and 4-kinase (Stochiometry: 1 : 1)

o Abstract
The PIKKs are a group of ancient eukaryotic protein kinases including ATM, ATR and DNA-PK. These proteins are characterized by their large size (>200 KDa) and by the presence of a highly conserved phosphoinositide 3-kinase-like catalytic domain. They appear to function principally as protein kinases, however (Yang,2004). PIKKs are the principal components of the DNA damage checkpoint pathway and are probably present in all eukaryotes. The common phosphorylation site for PIKKs is a serine or threonine followed by a glutamine residue, a motif commonly dubbed ...[S/T]Q... (Kim,1999). Often substrate regions are characterized by high local density of SQ/TQ motifs that have been termed "SCDs" (SQ/TQ cluster domains). While sharing the same substrate specificity, the PIKK family members are activated by different checkpoint responses. ATM is involved in the checkpoint response to ionizing radiation, DNA double strand breaks and in V(D)J recombination, while ATR seems to play a primary role in checkpoints induced by UV irradiation or DNA replication blocks. DNA-PK, which has essential functions in V(D)J recombination as well as in non-homologous end joining, is also associated with the checkpoint response (Yang,2004). In general it is often found that the same substrate is phosphorylated by both ATM and ATR in a cell cycle and time dependent manner.
