Brief description:  Mercaptopyruvate sulfur transferase transfers sulfur ion from 3' sulfur of mercaptopyruvate to a variety of acceptors. Physiological acceptor is unknown. Cyanide is one known acceptor in mamals. D2023.5 is the worm homolog gene. Wormbase says that RNAi experiments produce infertile progeny.
Report any problems that might have appeared and any solutions:  eRNAi program produced several primer sets that appear to have equal efficency. Problem is that no distinct (visible) phenotype is produced.
