... events regulate the development of mouth morphology in the nematode Pristionchus pacificus. This nematode has the ability to form two alternative mouth morphologies depending on environmental cues, an example of phenotypic plasticity. We found that, in addition to a previously described sulfatase...

... cDNAs in a Cel-mab-5 mutant background. We show that the MAB-5 ortholog from Pristionchus pacificus , but not the C. elegans paralogous Hox proteins can rescue Cel-mab-5 . Experiments with chimeric, truncated and mutagenized Hox proteins suggest the specificity to be conferred by the N-terminal arm...

... and muscles and several neurons. The gonad plays a central role in patterning the underlying ectoderm to form the vulva and guiding the migration of the sex myoblasts to their final position. In Pristionchus pacificus , the egg-laying system is homologous to C. elegans, but comparative studies revealed...

... identified. In Pristionchus pacificus , vulva formation differs from Caenorhabditis elegans with respect to several autonomous and conditional aspects of cell fate specification. To understand the molecular basis of these evolutionary changes, we have performed a genetic analysis of vulva formation in P...

...Benno Jungblut; Ralf J. Sommer ABSTRACT Vulva development differs between Caenorhabditis elegans and Pristionchus pacificus in several ways. Seven of 12 ventral epidermal cells in P. pacificus die of apoptosis, whereas homologous cells in C. elegans fuse with the hypodermal syncytium. Vulva...

...Ralf J. Sommer; Andreas Eizinger; Kwang-Zin Lee; Benno Jungblut; Anja Bubeck; Isabel Schlak ABSTRACT In the two nematode species Caenorhabditis elegans and Pristionchus pacificus the vulva equivalence group in the central body region is specified by the Hox gene lin-39. C. elegans lin-39 mutants...
