The homeobox-containing mec-3 gene of C. elegans is expressed in 10 mechanosensory neurons and is necessary for these cells to acquire their fate. All the mec-3-expressing cells are anterior daughters from an asymmetric cell division. In this paper, we examine the expression of a mec-3--lacZ fusion in the presence of mutations that may disrupt asymmetric… CONTINUE READING
