It's funny Katie was teaching him the word PES-2! Pes-2 was identified in two different molecular screens, a promoter-trapping screen and a screen for genes that are preferentially transcribed in pre-gastrulation embryos; by homology, pes-2 is predicted to function in ubiquitin-proteasome mediated protein degradation and may also play a role in lifespan determination, as its expression is downregulated in young adult worms containing loss-of-function mutations in the daf-2 insulin/IGF-1 receptor.
Glad to see she's learning her evolutionary-biology lessons.
