The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is an excellent model system in which to study in vivo organization and function of the intermediate filament (IF) system for epithelial development and function. Using a transgenic ifb-2::cfp reporter strain, a mutagenesis screen was performed to identify mutants with aberrant expression patterns of the IF protein IFB-2,(More)
Intermediate filaments (IFs) make up one of the three major fibrous cytoskeletal systems in metazoans. Numerous IF polypeptides are synthesized in cell type-specific combinations suggesting specialized functions. The review concentrates on IFs in the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans which carries great promise to elucidate the still unresolved(More)
Intermediate filaments are major cytoskeletal components whose assembly into complex networks and isotype-specific functions are still largely unknown. Caenorhabditis elegans provides an excellent model system to study intermediate filament organization and function in vivo. Its intestinal intermediate filaments localize exclusively to the endotube, a(More)
