Abstract

The MIG-10 protein plays a role in axon guidance in C. elegans. The mig-10(mp0920) mutant was characterized phenotypically by measuring the migration of the ALM and AVM neurons as well as the anterior and posterior processes of the excretory cell. The excretory processes of the mig-10(mp0920) mutants showed an intermediate truncation between wild-type and the null mutant mig-10(ct41), while neuronal migration was unaffected by mig-10(mp0920. Three exons of mig- 10(mp0920) were sequenced and found to be wild-type.
