GLB-12, a globin in C. elegans plays a major role in the reproduction.
GLB-12 is a globin of C. elegans that forms an essential component of a redox signaling pathway. Our model shows that GLB-12 converts O2 to superoxide, after which this signal is modulated by an intracellular and an extracellular SOD, creating a redox signaling pathway. Moreover this redox pathway regulates multiple aspects in oogenesis, including germline apoptosis by signaling via both the p38 and JNK MAPK pathway.
