Gene Summary
Serine/threonine-protein kinase involved in memory formation. Together with the cAMP-dependent protein kinase A Pka-C1, promotes long-term memory (LTM) by regulating CrebB stability and activity. Involved in the maintenance of anesthesia-sensitive memory (ASM) which includes short-term memory (STM) and middle-term memory (MTM). (UniProt, Q9VM90)

Gene Group (FlyBase)
OTHER CONVENTIONAL PROTEIN KINASE DOMAIN KINASES -
The group of 'other conventional protein kinase domain kinases' consists of kinases with a conventional eukaryotic protein kinase domain that do not fit into any of the other major groups. This grouping is described in FBrf0201870.
Protein Function (UniProtKB)

Model Confidence:
  • Very high (pLDDT > 90)
  • Confident (90 > pLDDT > 70)
  • Low (70 > pLDDT > 50)
  • Very low (pLDDT < 50)

AlphaFold produces a per-residue confidence score (pLDDT) between 0 and 100. Some regions with low pLDDT may be unstructured in isolation.

      Origin and Etymology
      Discoverer
      Etymology

      The gene is named 'meng-po' based on memory phenotypes; Meng-Po is a character in Chinese mythology (the Lady of Forgetfulness) who ensures that people are ready for reincarnation by providing the 'Tea of Forgetfulness' so they lose memory associated with their former life.
