CUTI-1: a novel tetraspan protein involved in C. elegans CUTicle formation and epithelial integrity

Fritz, Julie-Anne; Behm, Carolyn


The nematode cuticle is a tough extracellular matrix composed primarily of cross-linked collagens and non-collagenous cuticulins. It is required for nematode motility and protection from the external environment. Little is known about how the complex process of cuticle formation has been adapted to the specialized requirements of the nematode cuticle, which is structurally and compositionally unique from other organisms. The C. elegans gene cuti-1 (CUTicle and epithelial Integrity) encodes...[Show more]
