Concise_descriptionndx-7 encodes a NUDIX hydrolase; by sequence comparison, NDX-7 is predicted to function as a pyrophosphatase, and is most closely related to the mouse RP2 protein that has unknown substrate specificity but is regulated transcriptionally by the presence of androgens; in C. elegans, loss of ndx-7 activity via RNA-mediated interference (RNAi) does not result in any obvious abnormalities, consistent with the proposed nonessential roles for Nudix proteins in eliminating potentially toxic nucleotide metabolites from cells and modulating levels of metabolic intermediates by shuttling them into alternative biochemical pathways.
