A rapid cascade of regulatory events defines the developmental fates of embryonic cells. However, once established, these developmental fates and the underlying transcriptional programs can be remarkably stable. Here, we describe two proteins, MEP-1 and LET-418/Mi-2, required for maintenance of somatic differentiation in C. elegans. In animals lacking MEP-1(More)
The role of aggregation of abnormal proteins in cellular toxicity is of general importance for understanding many neurological disorders. Here, using a yeast model, we demonstrate that mutations in many proteins involved in endocytosis and actin function dramatically enhance the toxic effect of polypeptides with an expanded polyglutamine (polyQ) domain.(More)
