Status

Functioni

Acts downstream of PI3 kinase age-1 and kinase pdk-1 in the daf-2/insulin receptor-like transduction pathway (PubMed:9716402, PubMed:10364160, PubMed:11747825, PubMed:11381260, PubMed:18782349, PubMed:15068796). Essential role in regulating developmental arrest at the dauer stage (PubMed:10364160). Phosphorylates Forkhead-related daf-16 and the longevity-promoting skn-1 transcription factors, which inhibits their entry into the nucleus and antagonizes their functions (PubMed:18358814, PubMed:11747825, PubMed:11381260, PubMed:15068796). Role in immune function and pathogen resistance (PubMed:18782349). Downstream of age-1 and together with akt-2 and sgk-1, promotes cell survival during embryonic development (PubMed:25383666).8 Publications
