SomaticFIG 3: The DTC regulates gonad elongations during development.
DIC/epifluorescent images of lag-2::GFP transgenic hermaphrodites at various stages of gonad development, anterior gonad arm, lateral view, left side. lag-2 is expressed in the DTC. The posterior gonad arm (not shown) elongates in the opposite direction from the midbody (arrowhead), producing a mirror image of the anterior gonad arm. A. Late L1; B. late L2/early L3; C. mid-L3; D. L4. Magnification, 1000x. (Strain source: D. Gao and J. Kimble.)
