LET-502

CELE_C10H11.9, C10H11.9
let-502 encodes a Rho-binding Ser/Thr kinase orthologous to human myotonic dystrophy kinase (DM-kinase); let-502 is required for early embryonic cleavages, embryonic elongation, migration of hypodermal P cells to a ventral position, normal spermathecal contraction, and fertility; LET-502 is required for hypodermal cells to properly change their shape, and is expressed in those cells, during embryonic elongation; let-502 mutations are suppressed by mel-11 mutations, and the pattern of LET-502 expression in the embryonic epidermis and the spermatheca is opposite to that of MEL-11, indicating that LET-502 and MEL-11 have opposing functions (presumably tissue contraction and relaxation); MEL-11 requires LET-502 (along with the nonmuscle myosin NMY-1) for proper localization.
