- The Importance of cGMP Signaling in Sensory Cilia for Body Size Regulation in Caenorhabditis elegansManabi Fujiwara
Department of Biology, Graduate School of Science, Kyushu University
Genetics 201:1497-510. 2015..The large number of guanylyl cyclases encoded in the C. elegans genome suggests that EGL-4 exerts pleiotropic effects by partnering with different guanylyl cyclases for different downstream functions. ..
- A novel zf-MYND protein, CHB-3, mediates guanylyl cyclase localization to sensory cilia and controls body size of Caenorhabditis elegansManabi Fujiwara
Department of Biology, Kyushu University, Hakozaki, Higashi ku, Fukuoka, Japan
PLoS Genet 6:e1001211. 2010..elegans. Given that CHB-3 is highly conserved in mammal, a similar system may be used in the trafficking of signaling proteins to the cilia of other species...
- Forgetting in C. elegans is accelerated by neuronal communication via the TIR-1/JNK-1 pathwayAkitoshi Inoue
Department of Biology, Faculty of Sciences, Kyushu University, Higashi ku, Fukuoka 812 8581, Japan
Cell Rep 3:808-19. 2013..Therefore, we propose that these neurons accelerate forgetting through the TIR-1/JNK-1 pathway by sending signals that directly or indirectly stimulate forgetting...
- Behavioral choice between conflicting alternatives is regulated by a receptor guanylyl cyclase, GCY-28, and a receptor tyrosine kinase, SCD-2, in AIA interneurons of Caenorhabditis elegansYoichi Shinkai
Department of Biology, Graduate School of Sciences, Kyushu University, Fukuoka 812 8581, Japan
J Neurosci 31:3007-15. 2011..These results suggest that the activity of AIA interneurons regulates the behavioral choice between the alternatives. We propose that GCY-28 and SCD-2 regulate sensory integration by modulating the activity of AIA interneurons...
