    ..The absence of wwp-1 by itself does not cause sensitivity to UV irradiation, but it acts synergistically with a mutation in xpa-1 to enhance UV hypersensitivity. ..

    ..Taken together, our data suggest that WWP-1 and DAF-16 function in parallel within the fundamental DAF-2 insulin/IGF-1 signaling network to regulate fundamental cellular responses in C. elegans. ..
