The C. elegans glycosyltransferase BUS-8 has two distinct and essential roles in epidermal morphogenesis.

Abstract:

Ventral enclosure in Caenorhabditis elegans involves migration of epidermal cells over a neuroblast substrate and subsequent adhesion at the ventral midline. Organisation of the neuroblast layer by ephrins and their receptors is essential for this migration. We show that bus-8, which encodes a predicted glycosyltransferase, is essential for embryonic enclosure and acts in or with ephrin signalling to mediate neuroblast organisation and to permit epidermal migration. BUS-8 acts non-cell-autono...
