High impact information on chs-2

  • Chitin deposition in these two sites is likely regulated by the activities of chs-1 (T25G3.2) and chs-2 (F48A11.1), respectively [1].
  • Knocking down chs-2 by RNAi caused a defect in the pharynx and led to L1 larval arrest, indicating that chitin is involved in the development and function of the pharynx [1].
  • C. elegans chitin synthase genes were silenced by feeding nematodes bacteria expressing appropriate chitin synthase dsRNA from a plasmid vector, while M. artiellia egg masses were soaked in dsRNA solution [2].
