Membrane associated collagens with interrupted triple helices (MACITs): evolution from a bilaterian common ancestor and functional conservation in C. elegans

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 4678570
PMID: 26667623
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-015-0554-3

[…] α-bungarotoxin. It should be noted that in the late three-fold stage the worm can move inside the egg by rolling around its longitudinal axis, indicating advanced motor system development (http://www.wormatlas.org/).Studies of MACIT collagens in humans and mice have suggested that these collagens have pathophysiological roles in the nervous system, in developmental innervation of muscles and at th […]


Enrichment of H3K9me2 on Unsynapsed Chromatin in Caenorhabditis elegans Does Not Target de Novo Sites

PMCID: 4555223
PMID: 26156747

[…] als and Methods). We estimate that 90–95% of the nuclei in the dissected gonad arms are germline (∼325 germ cells per gonad arm vs. 10 somatic sheath cells and ≤24 somatic spermathecal cells; see www.wormatlas.org, ). In addition, the hermaphrodite germ line generates high levels of maternal mRNA for inclusion in oocytes, which will increase the germline contribution to the steady state transcript […]


WormGUIDES: an interactive single cell developmental atlas and tool for collaborative multidimensional data exploration

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4459063
PMID: 26051157
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-015-0627-8

[…] of complex visualizations that highlight specific subsets of cells. As an example, the color scheme in Fig. a colors terminal cells based on their fate. Colors follow the tissue color conventions of WormAtlas [], a community anatomy knowledge base. Sliders explicitly control the type of search executed: systematic names, functional cell names, parts list descriptions or gene expression search. La […]


Towards 3D in silico modeling of the sea urchin embryonic development

PMCID: 3877407
PMID: 24386014

[…] evelopment []. Further details concerning the cell clonal analysis in Caenorhabditis elegans can be found in [, ] and all the available data has been collected by the Nematode community on http://www.wormatlas.org/. It should be noted that the digital reconstruction performed so far on Nematoda has focused on displaying the gene regulatory network data according to cell position, but little integr […]


C. elegans as Model for the Study of High Glucose– Mediated Life Span Reduction

PMCID: 2768179
PMID: 19675139
DOI: 10.2337/db09-0567

[…] d visualized by a Texas Red-labeled rabbit anti-mouse second antibody (Biozol) as described previously (). Immunhistology was performed according to the protocol of Ruvkun (for details see http://www.wormatlas.org/anatmeth/finneyruvkun.pdf). Formation and colocalization of MG-H1 with mitochondria was quantified by using the image processing and analysis software ImageJ () with the Intensity Correl […]
