    ..Consistent with this hypothesis, we find for the two identified interacting sets that the individual members of each set are temporally coexpressed, whereas the two sets are expressed approximately 2 h apart during matrix synthesis. ..

    ..Together, these results reveal important roles for the eaf-1 and ell-1 genes in the regulation of extracellular matrix components. ..

    ..Thus, ERI-1 is a negative regulator that may normally function to limit the duration, cell-type specificity or endogenous functions of RNA interference. ..
