    ..Since C. elegans lacks satellite cells, this mechanism is intrinsic to the muscles and raises the question if such a mechanism also exists in higher metazoans. ..

    ..We illustrate the utility of the resource by systematic chromatin immunopurification and automated 4D imaging, which produced detailed DNA binding and cell/tissue distribution maps for key transcription factor proteins. ..

    ..assays ZYX-1 interacts with several known dense body and M-line proteins, including DEB-1 (vinculin) and ATN-1 (?-actinin)...

    ..A major constituent of the dense-body is a 107,000-D polypeptide that shares determinants with vertebrate alpha-actinin. A second dense-body constituent is a more basic and antigenically distinct 107,000-D polypeptide that is ..

    ..Thus, we propose a model in which tropomodulin and enhancers of actin dynamics synergistically regulate elongation and shortening of actin filaments at the pointed end. ..

    ..We propose that CPNA-1 acts as a linker between an integrin-associated protein, PAT-6, and membrane-distal components of integrin adhesion complexes in the muscle of C. elegans. ..

    ..fluorescence microscopy, we discovered that sorting of the prominent actin-bundling proteins fascin and ?-actinin to distinct networks is an intrinsic behavior, free of complicated cellular signaling cascades...
