Genes Inhibited How is RNAi inhibition determined?
Gene Inhibited  K04G2.8 (apr-1)
Description of "K04G2.8"  The apr-1 gene encodes an ortholog of human APC (OMIM:175100, mutated in familial adenomatous polyposis) that is required for germline fertility, the control of homeodomain expression (CEH-13 and LIN-39) during embryogenesis and vulval development, and for the migration and elongation of hypodermal cells during embryo morphogenesis; APR-1 is thought to reside in adherens junctions, while also stimulating two beta-catenins in Wnt signalling (HMP-2 in migrating epithelial cells, and BAR-1 in the vulval precursor cells); however, APR-1 also binds PRY-1/axin, and with PRY-1 inhibits RAS-independent Wnt induction of LIN-39.
KOG Annotation  Beta-catenin-binding protein APC, contains ARM repeats

Remark  RNAi was performed in bar-1(ga80); hs::delNTbar-1 background. To avoid embryonic lethality, animals were fed dsRNA-expressing bacteria starting at the L1 stage and the vulval phenotype of these same animals was examined later in the L4 stage.
