Purpose: We observed protein homeostasis modulations when anc-1 is knocked-down. We wanted to measure changes in gene expression profiles following this manipulation. Methods: We treated wild type (strain N2) or polyQ35-YFP (strain AM140) nematodes, which express toxic aggregative proteins that challenge their protein homeostasis, with anc-1 RNAi until day six of adulthood, and compared their gene expression levels to those of untreated worms. Results: The knockdown of anc-1 leads to modified expression levels of hundreds of genes. There is an enrichment of transcription factors and protein homeostasis modulators, such as E3 ubiquitin ligases. Conclusions: anc-1 regulates protection from toxic aggregative proteins, at least partially, by regulating the expression of genes that encode protein homeostasis factors. Overall design: Wild type strain, three repeats; polyQ35-YFP strain, four repeats. Each repeat has two conditions: untreated (EV), and RNAi toward anc-1.
