F10B5.7 Details Help
Description  rrf-3 encodes an RNA-directed RNA polymerase (RdRP) homolog that inhibits somatic RNAi, and thus promotes activity of repeated genes (e.g., multicopy transgenic arrays); the effect of RRF-3 on RNAi is opposite to that of RRF-1 (which stimulates somatic RNAi), which might arise from competition by RRF-3 with RRF-1 or EGO-1 in RNAi formation; rrf-3(allele) or rrf-3(allele2) mutants are hypersensitive to somatic RNAi, and conversely suppress the activity of an integrated rol6 (su1006) transgene.
Homology Group (KOG)  RNA-directed RNA polymerase QDE-1 required for posttranscriptional gene silencing and RNA interference
