The acyltransferase gene bus-1 exhibits conserved and specific expression in nematode rectal cells and reveals pathogen-induced cell swelling.

Abstract:

Susceptibility to the rectal pathogen Microbacterium nematophilum provides a means of examining hindgut differentiation in C. elegans. Mutants of bus-1 are resistant to infection with this pathogen. We show here that bus-1 encodes a predicted acyltransferase expressed in rectal epithelial cells (K, F, and U), suggesting its involvement in regional surface modification. bus-1 reporter genes were used to show spatial regulation by hindgut developmental control genes: egl-38, mab-9, and mab-23. ...
