Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_C45B2.7, C45B2.7
ptr-4 encodes a nematode-specific member of the sterol sensing domain (SSD) proteins, distantly paralogous to Drosophila PATCHED (PTC) and human PTCH (OMIM:601309, mutated in basal cell nevus syndrome); PTR-4 is strongly required for normal molting from L4 to adult stages male tail development (a role conserved in C. briggsae); PTR-4 is also required for normal endocytosis of yolk by oocytes, adult alae formation, growth to full size, locomotion, and viability.
