Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_T07D1.4, T07D1.4
fox-1 encodes an RNA-binding protein of the RNA recognition motif (RRM) superfamily of ribonucleic acid binding proteins; during C. elegans development, FOX-1 functions redundantly with other numerator elements to effect proper dosage compensation in the early embryo; in influencing dosage compensation, FOX-1 likely acts via post-transcriptional regulation of xol-1 mRNA levels; in addition to its role in dosage compensation, fox-1 activity is also required for normal male mating behavior; Western analysis and lacZ reporter constructs indicate that FOX-1 is expressed throughout the life cycle, beginning at the 18-20-cell stage of embryogenesis and continuing on through larval stages and into adult hermaphrodites and males; while early embryonic expression of fox-1 is ubiquitous, postembryonic expression is limited to a subset of head and tail neurons.
