  1. Sherwood D, Butler J, Kramer J, Sternberg P. FOS-1 promotes basement-membrane removal during anchor-cell invasion in C. elegans. Cell. 2005;121:951-62 pubmed
    ..These results reveal a key genetic network that controls basement-membrane removal during cell invasion. ..
  2. Pettitt J, Wood W, Plasterk R. cdh-3, a gene encoding a member of the cadherin superfamily, functions in epithelial cell morphogenesis in Caenorhabditis elegans. Development. 1996;122:4149-57 pubmed
    ..The lack of detectable defects associated with the other cells expressing cdh-3 reporter constructs hints at the existence of other genes that can compensate for cdh-3 loss of function. ..

    ..We postulate that the differential levels and combinatorial patterns of lin-11, cog-1, and nhr-67 expression are a part of a regulatory code for the mature vulval cell types...
