High impact information on let-756

  • This activation is not suppressed by mutation in either of the known genes encoding FGF ligands (egl-17 or let-756) but is well suppressed when both are mutated, indicating that either ligand is sufficient and at least one is necessary for FGFR activation [1].
  • LET-756 deleted in its core region was no longer able to rescue the lethal phenotype of a let-756 null mutant, and only chimeras containing the cores of FGFs 9, 16, and 20 showed rescue capacity [2].
