Is affected by 20-hydroxyecdysone and ivermectin based on proteomic and RNA-seq studies. Is predicted to encode a protein with the following domains: DnaJ domain; GYF domain 2; DnaJ domain; Armadillo-like helical; Armadillo-type fold; GYF domain 2; GYF-like domain superfamily; and Chaperone J-domain superfamily. Is an ortholog of C. elegans chrI_pilon.g1520
. In C. elegans, rme-8
is involved in several processes, including mechanosensory behavior; positive regulation of nematode male tail tip morphogenesis; and vesicle-mediated transport.
