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 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)
