Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_K12C11.2, SMT3, K12C11.2
smo-1 encodes the C. elegans ortholog of SUMO, a small ubiquitin-like moiety that, when attached to protein substrates, regulates their subcellular localization and activity; smo-1 is an essential gene: loss of its activity results in embryonic and larval lethality; in addition, smo-1 mutants have defects in synaptonemal complex disassembly and bivalent formation, enhance meiotic defects of zhp-3::gfp mutants and show mislocalization of ZHP-3 in late pachytene; smo-1 is also required for reproductive system development, where its target may be the LIN-11 LIM homeodomain protein.
