High impact information on Lk6


Biological context of Lk6

  • Constitutive overexpression of LK6 is deleterious to flies and causes defects in microtubule organisation in both eggs and early embryos, whereas constitutive overexpression of a mutant form containing a point mutation that severely impairs the kinase activity is without effect [2].

Other interactions of Lk6

  • One is Lk6, which encodes a protein kinase predicted to regulate the rate-limiting initiation factor eIF4E [3].
  • In this screen, we recovered three known genes, Lk6, misshapen, and Akap200 [4].
