    ..Persistent phosphorylation of Thr(588) (activation loop) promoted ubiquitinylation and proteasome-mediated degradation of DKF-1. Each DKF-1 domain displayed novel properties indicative of functional malleability (plasticity). ..

    ..Targeted DKF-1 expression corrected this locomotory defect in dkf-1 null animals. Supraphysiological expression of DKF-1 limited C. elegans growth to approximately 60% of normal length. ..

    ..The results suggest a mechanism for increased longevity and show that a PKD links DAG signals to regulation of stress responses and life span. ..
