In Caenorhabditiselegans almost all the epithelial cells fuse to form permanent syncytia.Cells in the vulva and hypodermis fuse autonomously to produce ring shaped cells with deŽ ned structures and functions. Analysis of temporal and spatial sequence of events together with ultrastructural characterisation of cell fusion intermediates show that fusion pores in speciŽ c domains of the membranes dilate and subsequently vesicles are formed. The fusomorphogenetic hypothesis states that these… CONTINUE READING
