No visible phenotype. In a zig-5 mutant background, 74 percent of animals have cell bodies of ASI and ASH head neurons displaced either on the top of or anterior to the nerve ring. In addition, double mutants show defects in the positioning of the ventral nerve cord (VNC) axons characterized by axons of embryonically generated PVQ, PVP and HSN neurons from the left and right VNC drifting into the opposite cord (axon flip-over). Both defects begin at the L3 larval stage and become more pronounced at the L4 larval and adult stages. Cell body and axon positioning is normal in embryos and in L1 larvae. In a zig-1, zig-2, zig-3 or zig-4 mutant background, cell body positioning of ASI and ASH head neurons is normal. In unc-13 or unc-54 mutant background, where locomotion is impaired, cell body positioning of ASI and ASH neurons is normal. In a sax-7 (nj53) mutant background, cell body and axon positioning is normal. Simultaneous RNAi-mediated knockdown of zig-5 and zig-8 at the embryonic, larval or adult stage causes a displacement of ASI and ASH head neurons in 6 to 9 percent of animals.1 Publication

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:i47643AC5F1D9E3A1
