serine/threonine kinase - homolog of mammalian Homeodomain interacting protein kinase - acts as a positive regulator of Wingless pathway by stabilizing Armadillo - promotes Notch signal transduction in the eye by inhibition of the co-repressor Groucho
3' UTR contains an ORF that is conserved among close Drosophila species (FBrf0202906; potential peptide 69 aa in length).

During eye development, Hipk is expressed in a dynamic pattern throughout the eye disc. In late 2nd instar Hipk is enriched in the medial domain of the visual primordium including the D/V boundary of the eye disc. Starting in mid 3rd instar, Hipk expression is enriched in the anterior folds of the eye discs and becomes broadly expressed ahead of the morphogenetic furrow. Later in the 3rd instar, expression is further refined to a narrow stripe covering much of the width of the disc.

Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.
