High impact information on unc-59

  • In this study, we show that both the unc-59 and unc-61 loci encode Caenorhabditis elegans septins [1].
  • For some of these genes (lin-5, lin-6, unc-59, unc-85), this nonspecificity probably reflects a general utilization of their products in cellular replication [2].
