Abstract

MIG-10 is a protein that is required for the migration of certain neurons and outgrowth of the excretory cell process during development in Caenorhabditis elegans. The mig-10 (mp0920) allele was characterized by sequencing the coding region of the gene. Mutant animals were also characterized by measuring the migration distances of neurons and the excretory cell process length. Characterization of a novel missense allele would lead to a better understanding of the MIG-10 protein domains.
