- ck [Search on AGR]
crinkled (ck) encodes a myosin VIIa homolog that is expected to have roles in cellular protrusion formation and cargo intracellular transport. ck hypomorphs are hearing defective and present abnormal chaetae and trichomes.

Predicted to enable oxidoreductase activity, acting on the CH-OH group of donors, NAD or NADP as acceptor. Predicted to be involved in steroid biosynthetic process. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease; CHILD syndrome; CK syndrome; and hypospadias. Is an ortholog of human SDR42E1 (short chain dehydrogenase/reductase family 42E, member 1) and SDR42E2 (short chain dehydrogenase/reductase family 42E, member 2).

Choline kinase (CK) and ethanolamine kinase (EK) catalyze the phosphorylation of choline/ethanolamine to phosphocholine/phosphoethanolamine. This is the first enzyme in the biosynthesis of phosphatidylcholine/phosphatidylethanolamine in all animal cells. The highly purified CKs from mammalian sources and their recombinant gene products have been shown to have EK activity also, indicating that both activities reside on the same protein. The choline kinase-like protein encoded by CHKL belongs to the choline/ethanolamine kinase family; however, its exact function is not known. Read-through transcripts are expressed from this locus that include exons from the downstream CPT1B locus. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2009]
