Genes Inhibited How is RNAi inhibition determined?
Gene Inhibited  ZK792.3 (inx-9)
Description of "ZK792.3"  inx-9 encodes an innexin, an integral transmembrane channel protein that is a structural component of invertebrate gap junctions; although the precise role of INX-9 in C. elegans development and/or behavior is not yet known, INX-9 may play a role in gonad or germline development, as INX-9 expression is detected solely in the sheath cells of the somatic gonad and particularly, the sheath cells in contact with proximal oocytes.
