Trehalose metabolism genes in Caenorhabditis elegans and filarial nematodes

Pellerone, Flavia; Archer, Stuart; Behm, Carolyn; Grant, Warwick N; Lacey, Michael; Somerville, A


The sugar trehalose is claimed to be important in the physiology of nematodes where it may function in sugar transport, energy storage and protection against environmental stresses. In this study we investigated the role of trehalose metabolism in nematodes, using Caenorhabditis elegans as a model, and also identified complementary DNA clones putatively encoding genes involved in trehalose pathways in filarial nematodes. In C. elegans two putative trehalose-6-phosphate synthase (tps) genes...[Show more]
