Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_F39H11.3, F39H11.3
cdk-8 encodes a member of the cyclin-dependent serine/threonine protein kinase family orthologous to human CDK8 (OMIM:603184) which functions in transcriptional regulation with the positive regulatory factor cyclin C, is associated with the RNA polymerase II holoenzyme, and may regulate gene-specific activators; CDK-8 also contains a glutamine/asparagine-rich domain; loss of cdk-8 function via RNA-mediated interference (RNAi) results in sterility in the injected hermaphrodite, suggesting that in C. elegans, CDK-8 may play a role in germ-line development.
