The Developmental Intestinal Regulator ELT-2 Controls p38-Dependent Immune Responses in Adult C. elegans
One of the central signaling modules of innate immunity is the p38 pathway. Previous studies in C. elegans also identified ELT-2, a conserved transcription factor important for intestinal development. Dena Block and colleagues aim to characterize the interactions between these two immune regulatory modules.
