...). Interestingly, fozi-1 -null mutants with a reduced level of CeMyoD lack most, if not all, M lineage-derived BWMs. Our results indicate that FOZI-1 and the Hox factor MAB-5 function redundantly with CeMyoD in the specification of the striated BWM fate in the C. elegans postembryonic mesoderm, implicating...

... sublineages are involved in lateral inhibition. Mutations in the homeotic gene Ppa-mab-5 cause severe misspecification of the M lineage, resembling more the C. elegans Twist than the mab-5 phenotype. Ectopic differentiation of P8.p in Ppa-mab-5 results from at least two separate interactions between M and P8...

... in different Hox mutant combinations, we found an essential but overlapping role for two of the Hox cluster genes, lin-39 and mab-5 , in diversification of the postembryonic mesoderm. This role of the two Hox gene products required the CEH-20 cofactor. One target of these two Hox genes is the C. elegans twist...

...Craig P. Hunter; Jeanne M. Harris; Julin N. Maloof; Cynthia Kenyon In Caenorhabditis elegans males, a row of epidermal precursor cells called seam cells generates a pattern of cuticular alae in anterior body regions and neural sensilla called rays in the posterior. The Hox gene mab-5 is required...

...Jeanne Harris; Lee Honigberg; Naomi Robinson; Cynthia Kenyon ABSTRACT In C. elegans , the Hox gene mab-5 , which specifies the fates of cells in the posterior body region, has been shown to direct the migrations of certain cells within its domain of function. mab-5 expression switches...

...Stephen J. Salser; Cynthia Kenyon ABSTRACT Hox genes establish body pattern throughout the animal kingdom, but the role these genes play at the cellular level to modify and shape parts of the body remains a mystery. We find that the C. elegans Antennapedia homolog, mab-5 , sequentially programs...

...Deborah W. Cowing; Cynthia Kenyon ABSTRACT mab-5 is a member of a complex of homeobox-containing genes evolutionarily related to the Antennapedia and bithorax complexes of Drosophila melanogaster . Like the homeotic genes in Drosophila, mab-5 is required in a particular region along the anterior...
