Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_K07E3.3, K07E3.3
dao-3 encodes a protein containing tetrahydrofolate dehydrogenase/cyclohydrolase catalytic and NAD(P)-binding domains; by similarity to mammalian enzymes, DAO-3 is predicted to function in one-carbon unit metabolism and thus, in amino acid and nucleotide biosynthesis; dao-3 expression appears to be regulated by daf-2-mediated insulin signaling: microarray experiments suggest that it is upregulated in daf-2 mutant adults, while differential display and Northern analyses suggest that it is down-regulated; a dao-3 promoter gfp fusion is expressed in larvae in the hypodermis and in the nervous system, including tail neurons and phasmids.
