High impact information on pat-6

  • RESULTS: PAT-6/actopaxin, the sole actopaxin homolog in C. elegans, is located in body wall muscle attachments that are in vivo homologs of focal adhesions [1].
  • Mammalian parvins are likely to have arisen late in evolution from gene duplication as they share a remarkably similar exon/intron organization, which is different from the organization of the single genes encoding parvin-like proteins in Drosophila and Caenorhabditis [2].
