cnk protein localization was assayed with an epitope tagged version of cnk using the sev enhancer system. Pi3K68D protein localizes to the apical portion of sev-expressing cells where adherens junctions are found. In S2 cells it is found in the cytoplasm and also in the membrane at points of cell-cellcontact.

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.

dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene.
cnk acts as a molecular platform that coordinates the assembly and activity of a phl-activating complex. ksr, which is recruited to cnk-bound phl by the ave protein, is a central compenent of the phl activation process.

2 alleles of cnk been recovered in a screen for mutations with mutant phenotypes in clones in the wing.
The N-terminal portion of the cnk protein strongly cooperates with Ras85D, whereas the C-terminal portion efficiently blocks Ras85D (Ras) and phl (Raf) signalling when overexpressed in the eye. Two domains in the N-terminal portion of cnk are critical for cooperation with Ras85D. cnk functions in more than one pathway downstream of Ras85D. The C-terminal portion of cnk regulates phl, a component of rl (MAPK) signalling while the N-terminal portion of cnk is involved in a rl-independent pathway.
Gene isolated in a screen of the second chromosome identifying mutants affecting disc morphology.
Mutant retinas lack the normal complement of photoreceptor neurons and cone cells. sag mutation only affects those cells derived from the second mitotic wave during retinal development. BrdU staining revealed that the number of mitotic cells in the second mitotic wave is reduced, but not eliminated. The first mitotic wave appears normal in the mutant.
