Mutations in the unc-23 gene in the free-living nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans result in detachment and dystrophy of the anterior body wall musculature and a bent-head phenotype when grown on solid substrate. We have determined that the unc-23 gene product is the nematode ortholog of the human BAG-2 protein, a member of the Bcl-2 associated athanogene(More)
UNC-97/PINCH is an evolutionarily conserved protein that contains five LIM domains and is located at cell-extracellular matrix attachment sites known as cell adhesion complexes. To understand the role of UNC-97/PINCH in cell adhesion, we undertook a combined genetic and cell biological approach to identify the steps required to assemble cell adhesion(More)
