Investigating the role of pal-1, the C. elegans caudal homologue, in the development of the stem-like seam cells

Abstract:

An organism’s epithelium provides essential protection against mechanical stress and pathogenic infection, as well as specialised secretory and sensory functions. Intriguingly, at the end of the first larval moult in C. elegans, epidermal P cells, which until now have comprised the majority of the ventral epidermis, migrate and remodel, relinquishing their epidermal role before taking on neuroectoblast fate. This leaves a ventral 'hole' in the architecture of the C. elegans
