Embryonic expression of a gut-specific esterase in Caenorhabditis elegans.

Abstract

We describe an esterase activity that, by the criterion of histochemical staining, is completely localized to the intestine of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Esterase activity appears in the embryonic gut when the embryo contains 4-8 intestinal precursor cells and 100-150 total cells. Esterase activity is abolished by treating early embryos with alpha… (More)
