We have identified several genes required for four aspects of the differentiation and function of a set of six touch receptor neurons in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans: (1) the generation of appropriate cells; (2) the specification of those cells to differentiate as touch receptors; (3) the maintenance of the differentiated state; and (4) the expression of products need for the cell function. Three major conclusions about the development of the touch cells arise from the analysis of these… CONTINUE READING
