    ..Both proteins have been implicated in homotypic ER membrane fusion. We provide evidence that homotypic membrane fusion is required to form the sheet structure in the early embryo. ..

    ..Together, these data suggest an evolutionarily conserved retro-translocation machinery at the endoplasmic reticulum. ..

    ..For improving ecological risk assessment of simple mixtures, this implies that the concentration addition model may need to be used in a probabilistic context, rather than in its traditional deterministic manner. ..

    ..Our findings identified a role for CDC-48(UFD-1/NPL-4) in DNA replication, which is important for cell cycle progression and genome stability. ..

    ..Taken together, these results suggest that UBXN-1, UBXN-2 and UBXN-3 are redundant cofactors for CDC-48/p97 and control spermatogenesis via the degradation of TRA-1A. ..

    ..We propose that E3 ubiquitin ligases function in concert with a specific partner chaperone. ..
