Behavioral and Immune Responses to Infection Require Gαq- RhoA Signaling in C. elegans

Abstract

Following pathogen infection the hosts' nervous and immune systems react with coordinated responses to the danger. A key question is how the neuronal and immune responses to pathogens are coordinated, are there common signaling pathways used by both responses? Using C. elegans we show that infection by pathogenic strains of M. nematophilum, but not exposure… (More)
