Caenorhabditis elegans

tor-2 encodes a AAA ATPase that, along with TOR-1 and OOC-5, comprise the three C. elegans orthologs of human torsinA; overexpression of TOR-2 in nematodes with polyglutamine repeat-induced protein aggregates indicates that TOR-2 can suppress protein aggregation, suggesting TOR-2 may play a role in regulation of protein folding; in wild-type animals, TOR-2 localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum; in animals containing polyglutamine protein aggregates, TOR-2 localizes to these sites of protein aggregation.
