ifas-1 is upregulated by fungal infection in a GPA-12 and STA-2-independent manner in the Caenorhabditis elegans epidermis.

Shizue Omi, Xing Zhang, Nishant Thakur, Nathalie Pujol,

Skin infection with the fungus <i>Drechmeria coniospora</i> leads to a transcriptional response in the worm epidermis. This involves an increased expression of a group of antimicrobial peptide (AMP) genes including those in the <i>nlp-29</i> and <i>cnc-2</i> clusters. The major pathways leading to the expression of these AMP genes have been ... Read more >>
