Genes Inhibited How is RNAi inhibition determined?
Gene Inhibited  F40F9.2 (tag-120)
Description of "F40F9.2"  tag-120 encodes a predicted transmembrane protein; as loss of tag-120 activity via RNAi does not result in any abnormalities, the precise role of TAG-120 in C. elegans development and/or behavior is not yet known; however, TAG-120 is homologous to a Drosophila NMDA receptor-associated protein and mammalian transmembrane proteins that function in Fas-mediated cell death, so TAG-120 may play a role in neuronal functions and/or apoptosis; a tag-120 reporter fusion is expressed in the nervous system, pharyngeal muscles, and to a lesser extent in the excretory system.
