In collaboration with Jan Dvorak group (Czech University of Life Sciences Prague) we used the C. elegans model organism to study physiological roles of glutamate carboxypeptidase 2 (GCPII) orthologs. Our data shows that the orthologs affect C. elegans pharyngeal physiology, reproduction, and structural integrity and these findings could serve as leads to elucidate GCPII functions in higher organisms.
