C. elegans NALCN mutants exhibited similarly defective MeSa avoidance. C. elegans mutants lacking e dense-core vesicle priming protein UNC-31 (CAPS) share highly similar phenotypes wi mutants lacking a neuronal Gαs pa way, including strong paralysis despite exhibiting near normal levels of steady-state acetylcholine release as indicated by drug sensitivity assays. Our genetic analysis shows at UNC-31 and neuronal Gαs are different parts of e same. Wild-type strain. Extensively used for genetic studies.

We analyzed e synaptic physiology of unc-13 mutants in e nematode C. elegans.Mutants of unc-13 had normal nervous system architecture, and e densities of synapses and postsynaptic receptors were normal at e neuromuscular ction. However, e number of synaptic vesicles at neuromuscular ctions was two- to reefold greater in unc-13 mutants an in wild-type animals. 18, 1996 · C. elegans UNC-40, a transmembrane protein and DCC homolog, is required in motile cells for orienting tod UNC-6 netrin cues, and along wi UNC-5, for orienting away from ese same cues. While ese functional interactions could be mediated indirectly, e simplest model is at UNC-6 and UNC-5 interact wi UNC-40, i.e., as ligand. 01, 1997 · Mechanically gated ion channels are important modulators of coordinated movement, yet little is known of eir molecular properties. We report at C. elegans unc-8, originally identified by gain-of-function mutations at induce neuronal swelling and severe uncoordination, encodes a DEG/ENaC family member homologous to subunits of a candidate mechanically gated ion channel. * * *About e C. elegans ConferenceAbout 1,700 scientists attended e 20 International C. elegans Meeting. e meeting featured more an 200 talks and 1,000 poster presentations on a diverse. 25, · Cholinergic neurotransmitter identity is defined by e expression of e enzyme choline acetyltransferase (ChAT. encoded by cha-1 in C. elegans) and e vesicular ACh transporter (VAChT. encoded by unc-17 in C. elegans). see Figure 1A for a description of e cholinergic pa way genes.
