Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_ZC455.10, dao-9, ZC455.10
fkb-4 encodes a peptidylprolyl cis/trans isomerase homologous to mammalian FK506 immunosuppressant-binding protein 9; FKB-4 expression is positively regulated by signaling through the DAF-2 insulin receptor-like pathway and in part, through the activity of the DAF-16 fork-head transcription factor suggesting that FKB-4 could play a role in metabolism and longevity; as loss of FKB-4 function via RNA-mediated interference does not result in any abnormalities, the precise role of FKB-4 in C. elegans development and/or behavior is not yet known; FKB-4 contains a predicted endoplasmic reticulum (ER) retention sequence and is thus proposed to localize to the ER.
