DESCRIPTION
Also known as SID1_CAEEL, sid-1. Plays a role in RNA-mediated gene silencing by acting cell-autonomously as a channel for the transport of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) between cells. Mediates the spread of dsRNA and subsequent silencing of genes in cells distant from the site of dsRNA introduction. Selective for dsRNA. Preferentially binds long dsRNA, from 50 base pairs up to 700. Short 20 base-pair long molecules are not bound. May also bind dsDNA, but with lower affinity. Binding may be sequence-independent (PubMed:26067272). May self-associate to form multimers.
