The C. elegans hermaphrodite vulva serves as a paradigm for understanding how signaling pathways control organ formation. Previous studies have shown that Wnt signaling plays important roles in vulval development. To understand the function and evolution of Wnt signaling in Caenorhabditis nematodes we focused on C. briggsae, a species that is substantially(More)
Chromatin modification genes play crucial roles in development and disease. In Caenorhabditis elegans, the class I histone deacetylase family member hda-1, a component of the nucleosome remodeling and deacetylation complex, has been shown to control cell proliferation. We recovered hda-1 in an RNA interference screen for genes involved in the morphogenesis(More)
