    ..These results define CHR3 as a critical regulator of all C. elegans molts and begin to define the molecular pathway for its function. ..

    ..This balance relies on direct crossregulation between NHR-25 and the distinct beta-catenin proteins WRM-1 and SYS-1. The nuclear receptor-beta-catenin interaction may be an ancient mechanism of cell-fate decision. ..

    ..Our results suggest that VCC is a major virulence factor, which induces a wide variety of immune response- related genes during V. cholerae infection in C. elegans...

    ..Silencing of nhr-25 also disturbs epidermal ultrastructure, which is probably the cause of compromised cuticle secretion and molting. Cell shape dynamics and molting thus represent distinct roles for NHR-25 in epidermal development. ..

    ..The synergistic action of miRNA paralogs in development may be a general feature of the diversified miRNA gene family. ..

    ..Our results indicate that NHR-23 is a critical co-regulator of functionally linked genes involved in growth and molting and reveal evolutionary parallels among the ecdysozoa. ..
