    ..Our studies indicate that the transcriptional repression activity of the RNT-1/BRO-1 complex regulates the G1 to S cell cycle progression during seam cell division. ..

    ..These studies provide new insights into the function and regulation of this important cancer-associated DNA-binding complex in stem cells and support the view that Runx/CBFbeta factors have oncogenic potential. ..

    ..Overall, our data suggest that ELT-1 has dual roles in the stem-like seam cells, acting both to promote proliferation and prevent differentiation. ..
