Daf 16 is 65% like the human forkhead transcription factor FOXO. It activates proteins involved in stress resistance and longevity, for example MnSOD, CuZnSOD, catalase, heat shock proteins, chaperones, and stress response proteins. It is also involved in the epidermis stress response — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emillyjones (talk • contribs) 18:49, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
Biology 3595 - Peer Review Hey Emily, I'm your peer reviewer. My apologies for the tardiness of this peer review, I found your article was very thorough in terms of describing the function and significance of your transcription factor. The only thing I would change is the organization of your article, I feel that it would flow better for the reader if the history and interactions subsections preceded the FOXO section so it's a more linear transition rather than one where the reader's focus jumps.
