    ..We have also investigated the role of lin-12 in forming the anterior/posterior pattern of fates. A lin-12 gain-of-function defect is masked by redundant positional information from F and U. ..

    ..The fates produced depended on the copy number of the mutation, suggesting that quantitative differences in receptor activity influence the decision between these two fates. ..

    ..The implications of this agreement and the potential role of conformational heterogeneity of the observed biophysical properties are discussed. ..

    ..Our data are consistent with a model in which integrins and laminins are needed for directed muscle arm extension to the nerve cords, while FGF signaling provides a general mechanism to regulate muscle membrane extension. ..

    ..Our results indicate that the sem-5 gene encodes a novel protein that functions in at least two distinct cell-signalling processes. ..

    ..These data indicate that GRB2 and Drk are functional homologues of Sem-5 and demonstrate the high degree of conservation of both structure and function between signaling systems throughout evolution. ..
