Gene: Ulk1 (unc-51 like autophagy activating kinase 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ulk1
Name: unc-51 like autophagy activating kinase 1
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including Hsp90 protein binding activity; enzyme binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in neuron projection regeneration and positive regulation of autophagosome assembly. Localizes to axon. Predicted to colocalize with guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor complex. Used to study mucositis. Orthologous to human ULK1 (unc-51 like autophagy activating kinase 1); PARTICIPATES IN autophagy pathway; mitochondrial autophagy pathway; mTOR signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3-methyladenine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: serine/threonine-protein kinase ULK1; Ulk1_mapped; Unc-51 like kinase 1 (C. elegans); unc-51-like kinase 1; unc-51-like kinase 1 (mapped)
