Caenorhabditis elegans

DCR-1

CELE_K12H4.8, eri-4, let-740, K12H4.8
dcr-1 encodes a bidentate ribonuclease that is homologous to E. coli RNAse III; DCR-1 is required both for RNA interference and for synthesis of small developmental RNAs; DCR-1 functions to process pre-miRNAs into their mature, 22-nt form; DCR-1 interacts in vivo with RDE-4, a double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) binding protein required for RNAi that interacts with trigger dsRNAs and may function to deliver dsRNAs to DCR-1 for endonucleolytic processing; DCR-1 is also required for fragmention of chromosomal DNA during apoptosis, and undergoes a CED-3 protease-mediated conversion from a ribonuclease to a deoxyribonuclease.
