Genes Inhibited How is RNAi inhibition determined?
Gene Inhibited  F25F8.2 (glc-2)
Description of "F25F8.2"  glc-2 encodes the beta subunit of a glutamate-gated chloride channel; in vivo, GLC-2 is capable of forming homomeric glutamate-activated channels, as well as heteromeric channels with GLC-1 that can be activated by glutamate and avermectins, antihelmintics that inhibit pharyngeal pumping; as loss of glc-2 activity via large-scale RNAi screens does not result in any obvious abnormalities, the precise role of GLC-2 in development and/or behavior is not yet known; however, GLC-2 expression is generally restricted to the pm4 pharyngeal muscles of larvae and adults, suggesting a role for GLC-2 in regulation of glutamatergic inhibition of pharyngeal pumping.
