Genes Inhibited How is RNAi inhibition determined?
Gene Inhibited  W03D8.6 (itx-1)
Description of "W03D8.6"  itx-1 encodes one of two Caspr orthologues found in the C. elegans genome; Caspr proteins belong to the Neurexin superfamily and are involved in mediating cell-cell contacts and in the formation of specialized membrane-domains in polarized epithelial and nerve cells; RNA interference of itx-1 suggests that itx-1 is involved in the correct positioning and maintenance of apical junctions and in maintaining epithelial integrity in the gut; gfp-reporter studies indicate that ITX-1 is expressed in intestinal cell epithelia and in the socket cells of the inner and outer labial sensilla; immunofluorescence studies indicate that ITX-1 localizes to the baso-lateral membranes of intestinal epithelia.
