C17F4.6 C17F4.6 P W All gene names: gcy-19; C17F4.6; 2D542; CE36790; NM_062090; WBGene00001544; WP:CE36790 WormBase description: gcy-19 encodes a predicted transmembrane guanylyl cyclase; as loss of gcy-19 activity via RNA-mediated interference does not result in any abnormalities, the precise role of GCY-19 in C. elegans development and/or behavior is not yet known; by sequence similarity, however, GCY-19 can be predicted to function in chemosensory signal transduction. WormBase CDS description: guanylate cyclase
C24A8.4 C24A8.4 P W All gene names: tag-306; C24A8.4; CE39226; WBGene00016038; WP:CE39226; XE950
C50H2.2 C50H2.2 P W All gene names: egl-47; gur-1; C50H2.2; 5K389; CE05480; CE36586; WBGene00001211; WP:CE05480; WP:CE36586 WormBase description: egl-47 encodes two seven transmembrane G-protein-coupled receptors; while loss-of-function mutations in egl-47 result in no detectable egg-laying defects, gain-of-function mutations and overexpression studies suggest that EGL-47 is required for negatively regulating activity of the hermaphrodite-specific motor neurons (HSNs) that control egg laying; EGL-47::GFP reporters made with either of the two isoforms indicate that EGL-47 is expressed in a small subset of head neurons, the HSNs, and the PVQ tail interneurons; in addition, a reporter made with the longer isoform, EGL-47A, is expressed in vulval cells in L4 larvae; in adults, the only cells of the egg-laying system that express EGL-47 are the HSNs; genetic and overexpression studies suggest that, in the HSNs, EGL-47 signals through the G-alpha protein GOA-1 to inhibit egg laying.

Y69A2AR.2 Y69A2AR.2 P W All gene names: ric-8; Y69A2AR.2; 4D413; CE27516; CE33952; NM_067838; RIC8_CAEEL; WBGene00004367; WP:CE27516; WP:CE33952 WormBase description: ric-8 encodes a receptor-independent G alpha guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF); ric-8 activity is required for regulating heterotrimeric G protein signaling pathways that control asymmetric cell division in the embryo as well as synaptic transmission in the nervous system; in the 1-cell embryo, RIC-8 functions as a GEF for GOA-1 thereby regulating spindle morphology, position, and consequently, the first asymmetric cell division; in the nervous system, ric-8 interacts with the goa-1/egl-30 pathways to regulate neurotransmitter secretion and effect normal egg laying, movement, and body flexion; in vitro, RIC-8 preferentially binds GOA-1-GDP and increases the rate of GOA-1 GTP binding; in the early embryo, RIC-8 localizes to the cellular cortex, junctions between cells, asters of the mitotic spindle, the central spindle (kinetochore microtubules), the nuclear envelope, and chromatin; RIC-8's localization to the cortex and asters mirrors that of GOA-1, while localization to the cortex and central spindle is similar to that of the GOA-1 regulators GPR-1/2, whose subcellular localization is RIC-8-dependent; in later stage animals, RIC-8 is seen in head and tail ganglia, amphid processes, and the ventral nerve cord, as well as in larval nonneuronal cells, such as germline nuclei, where it localizes near the nuclear membrane.
