Genes Inhibited How is RNAi inhibition determined?
Gene Inhibited  W02A2.1 (fat-2)
Description of "W02A2.1"  The fat-2 gene encodes a delta-12 fatty acyl desaturase that increases membrane fluidity when expressed in yeast, and that may protect against cold stress; FAT-2's substrate is unknown, but may be acyl-CoA; FAT-2 is required in vivo for normal levels of C18 or C20 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs); FAT-2 is also required for a normally fast growth rate and movement rate, and for normal body shape, defecation rhythm, and brood size.
