    Curr Biol 17:1925-37. 2007
    ..As a model, we used the nematode vulva, a highly conserved, essential organ, the development of which has been intensively studied in the model systems Caenorhabditis elegans and Pristionchus pacificus...
  2. ncbi request reprint Novel gain-of-function alleles demonstrate a role for the heterochronic gene lin-41 in C. elegans male tail tip morphogenesis
    Tania Del Rio-Albrechtsen
    Department of Biology, New York University, 100 Washington Square East, New York, NY 10003, USA
    Dev Biol 297:74-86. 2006
    ..We speculate that small changes affecting LIN-41 could have been significant for male tail evolution...

    Karin Kiontke
    Department of Biology, New York University, New York, NY 10003, USA
    Curr Biol 18:R1017-9. 2008
    ..Two naturally-occurring alleles in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans that differ by a single amino acid and cause striking differences in foraging behavior are probably maintained by selection in patchy environments...

    Department of Biology, New York University, 100 Washington Square East New York, New York 10003, USA
    BMC Evol Biol 11:339. 2011
    ..Only ten Caenorhabditis species were available in culture at the onset of this study. Many of them, like C. elegans, were mostly isolated from artificial compost heaps, and their more natural habitat was unknown...

    ..g. arl-1, rme-8) and rearrangement of the cytoskeleton (e.g. cdc-42, nmy-1, and nmy-2). Based on these data, we suggest that male tail tip morphogenesis is governed by a gene regulatory network with a bow-tie architecture...
