C elegans Deg-1 protein

a member of the degenerin gene family of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans; deg-1 encodes a putative ion channel for which altered function induces necrotic cell death of neurons required for mechanosensory behavior; expressed in the ASH, IL1, AVD, AVG, and PVC neurons in addition to some muscle cells; deg-1 mutation causes neuronal degeneration; amino acid sequence given in first source; GenBank L34414; do not confuse with the fungal protein DEG1
Also Known As:
