Caenorhabditis elegans gene dhp-1, encoding ancestor of CRMP and dihydropyrimidinase, dihydroorotase family.
SUMMARY back to top
[Wormbase] dhp-1 encodes a homolog of the human gene DPYS, which when mutated leads to dihydropyrimidinuria (OMIM:222748).
Wormbase predicts one model, but Caenorhabditis elegans cDNA sequences in GenBank, dbEST, Trace and SRA, filtered against clone rearrangements, coaligned on the genome and clustered in a minimal non-redundant way by the manually supervised AceView program, support at least 7 spliced variants

AceView synopsis, each blue text links to tables and details
Expression: According to AceView, this gene is expressed at high level, 3.1 times the average gene in this release, at all stages, except in embryos (and dauers) [Kohara cDNAs]. The expression profile for the gene, derived from the proportion of animals at each stage in each Kohara library is: embryos 3%, L1 or L2 larvae 71%, L3 to adult 26%. See the in situ hybridization pattern in Kohara NextDB. The sequence of this gene is defined by 13 cDNA clones and 28 elements defined by RNA-seq, some from l1 (seen 6 times), l2 (once), l4 (once). We annotate structural defects or features in 2 cDNA clones.
Alternative mRNA variants and regulation: The gene contains 16 distinct introns (15 gt-ag, 1 gc-ag). Transcription produces at least 8 different mRNAs, 7 alternatively spliced variants and 1 unspliced form. Variant a is transpliced to SL1. There are 2 probable alternative promotors, 4 non overlapping alternative last exons and 4 validated alternative polyadenylation sites (see the diagram). The mRNAs appear to differ by truncation of the 5' end, truncation of the 3' end, presence or absence of a cassette exon, overlapping exons with different boundaries, splicing versus retention of one intron. 89 bp of this gene are antisense to spliced gene cpg-3, raising the possibility of regulated alternate expression.
Function: There is one article specifically referring to this gene in PubMed. In addition we point below to 4 abstracts. This gene is associated to a phenotype. Proteins are expected to have molecular function (hydrolase activity) and to localize in cytoplasm.
Protein coding potential: 5 spliced and the unspliced mRNAs putatively encode good proteins, altogether 6 different isoforms (3 complete, 1 COOH complete, 2 partial), some containing Amidohydrolase 1 domain [Pfam]. The remaining 2 mRNA variants (2 spliced; 2 partial) appear not to encode good proteins.

Exon size is proportional to length, intron height reflects the number of cDNAs supporting each intron, the small numbers show the support of the introns in deep sequencing (with details in mouse-over) . Introns of the same color are identical, of different colors are different. 'Good proteins' are pink, partial or not-good proteins are yellow, uORFs are green. 5' cap or3' poly A flags show completeness of the transcript.
