Genes Inhibited How is RNAi inhibition determined?
Gene Inhibited  F55C5.5
Description of "F55C5.5"  F55C5.5 encodes a translational elongation factor Ts (EF-Ts) that binds two different EF-Tu proteins (EF-TU1/Y71H2AM.23 and EF-TU2/C43E11.4) in vitro, stimulating guanine-nucleotide exchange and mRNA translation; F55C5.5 is predicted to be mitochondrial and has a putative N-terminal transit peptide sequence; F55C5.5 is required in mass RNAi assays for normally rapid growth and for maintenance of the germline.
KOG Annotation  Mitochondrial translation elongation factor EF-Tsmt, catalyzes nucleotide exchange on EF-Tumt
