Abstract

We have characterized the developmental expression pattern of the Caenorhabditis elegans homologue of the mouse ky gene. The Ky protein has a putative key function in muscle development and has homologues in invertebrates, fungi and a cyanobacterium. The C. elegans Ky homologue gene has been named ltd-1 for LIM and transglutaminase domains gene. The LTD-1::GFP construct is expressed in developing hypodermal cells from the twofold stage embryo through adulthood. These data define the ltd-1 gene as a novel marker for C. elegans epithelial cell development.
