GSK3B is a proline-directed serine/threonine protein kinase involved in energy metabolism, neuronal cell development and body pattern formation. It is a negative regulator of glucose homeostasis and is involved in energy metabolism, inflammation, ER-stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, and apoptotic pathways. GSK3B is a critical component of the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway, and its activity results in the inhibition of Wnt signaling by mediating the degradation of beta-catenin. GSK3B is also involved in the Hedgehog, Notch, and insulin signaling pathways.
