Examples

  • The intracellular domain is not required for the formation of bi/trinucleate precursors, in a fraction of hemisegments examined.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Previous studies have shown that Rolling pebbles (Rols)/Antisocial (Ants), a scaffold protein with multiple protein interaction domains, is involved in sustaining fusion beyond the bi/trinucleate precursor stage.

  • ΔCT4-flag is able to rescue the duf, rst mutant up to the bi/trinucleate stage

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Initial fusion gives rise to a bi/trinucleate precursor followed by more fusion cycles forming a mature muscle.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Fusion completely fails in a duf, rst mutant, and is blocked at the bi/trinucleate stage in rols and loner single mutants.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • It is possible that even in the absence of robust Duf dependent signal transduction, requirements for the formation of a bi/trinucleate precursor are met.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • The first round of fusion leads to the formation of a bi/trinucleate precursor and requires molecules like Duf and Rst while later rounds of fusion require molecules like Rols, functions predicted by the phenotype of these mutants

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Events are repeated in a stepwise manner first leading to the formation of a bi/trinucleate precursor, followed by more such rounds of fusion, accompanied by growth at the ends of the myotube.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Fusion efficiency is significantly compromised in the double mutants compared to the single mutants (Students t-test P doi: 10.1371/journal. pone.0009374.g006 rols and loner single mutants block fusion at the bi/trinucleate stage with an average nuclear number of 2. 89±0.91 and 2. 11±0.91 respectively (
