High impact information on dpy-13

  • The DNA sequence reveals that dpy-13 is a member of the collagen multi-gene family, and it could encode a polypeptide of 302 amino acids [1].
  • The amanitin-binding subunit of RNA polymerase II in Caenorhabditis elegans is encoded by the ama-1 gene, located approximately 0.05 map unit to the right of dpy-13 IV [2].
  • Sequence comparison of the Caenorhabditis elegans dpy-13 and col-34 genes, and their deduced collagen products [3].

Other interactions of dpy-13

  • Both col-34 and dpy-13 have 5'-flanking elements in common with each other and also with other nematode Clg-encoding genes (clg) [3].
