unc-51 like autophagy activating kinase 1

Gene Summary

Enables identical protein binding activity; protein serine/threonine kinase activity; and small GTPase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including autophagosome assembly; positive regulation by symbiont of host autophagy; and protein phosphorylation. Located in autophagosome; cytosol; and phagophore assembly site membrane. Is extrinsic component of autophagosome membrane; extrinsic component of omegasome membrane; and extrinsic component of phagophore assembly site membrane. Part of Atg1/ULK1 kinase complex.
