ILK

A gene on chromosome 11p15.4 that encodes a receptor-proximal serine/threonine protein kinase which regulates integrin-mediated signal transduction, possibly by mediating so-called inside-out integrin signalling. ILK is the adhesion protein member of the ILK-PINCH complex, which is a convergence point of the integrin- and growth factor-signalling pathways; it may play a role in mediating cell architecture, adhesion to integrin substrates and anchorage-dependent growth in epithelial cells. It is highly expressed in the heart, and less so in the skeletal muscle, pancreas and kidneys.

From everything I know about Norquist and conservatives of his ilk, they really do hate the idea of government help for the needy, whose misfortune they attribute to defects of character while their own prosperity has nothing to do with the government subsidies they have been able to wangle, the taxes they have managed to evade, or the silver spoon that was often theirs at birth, but is solely attributable to their own talent and hard work.
