Citation Paradis S, Ailion M, Toker A, Thomas JH, Ruvkun G. (1999). A PDK1 homolog is necessary and sufficient to transduce AGE-1 PI3 kinase signals that regulate diapause in Caenorhabditis elegan. Genes Dev. 13: 1438-52. [pubmed]

Loss of function alleles extend life span by 60%.

Other phenotypes: Mutants are dauer constitutive and a gain of function allele can suppress age-1 dauer constitutive phenotype [pubmed]. Dauer constitutive phenotype of pdk-1(sa680) is suppressed by daf-16 [pubmed].
