The mechanisms governing apical membrane assembly during biological tube development are poorly understood. Here, we show that extension of the C. elegans excretory canal requires cerebral cavernous malformation 3 (CCM-3), independent of the CCM1 orthologue KRI-1. Loss of ccm-3 causes canal truncations and aggregations of canaliculular vesicles, which form ectopic lumen (cysts). We show that CCM-3 localizes to the apical membrane, and in cooperation with GCK-1 and STRIPAK, promotes CDC-42… CONTINUE READING
