Oxygen deprivation is rapidly deleterious for most organisms. However, Caenorhabditis elegans has developed the ability to survive anoxia for at least 48 hours. Mutations in the DAF-2/DAF-16 insulin-like signaling pathway promote such survival. We describe a pathway involving the HYL-2 ceramide synthase that acts independently of DAF-2. Loss of the ceramide(More)
The apoptotic protein tBid is effective in promoting both leakage and lipid mixing in liposomes composed of cardiolipin and phosphatidylcholine at a molar ratio of 1:2 in the presence of calcium. When half of the phosphatidylcholine component of these liposomes is replaced with phosphatidylethanolamine, a lipid that promotes negative membrane curvature, the(More)
