gene: hpk-1 [Browse genome (BioProject PRJNA13758)] [Legacy GBrowse] [Search on AGR]
Predicted to enable protein serine/threonine kinase activity and protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including autophagosome assembly; determination of adult lifespan; and response to heat. Located in nucleus. Expressed in several structures, including gonad and neurons. Used to study Parkinson's disease. Is an ortholog of human HIPK1 (homeodomain interacting protein kinase 1) and HIPK2 (homeodomain interacting protein kinase 2).
