Target-selected gene inactivation and gene expression patterns of ETS transcription factors in Caenorhabditis elegans.

The involvement of the ETS transcription factor family in human cancer has highlighted the importance of investigating their role in normal biology. We created deletions in three Caenorhabditis elegans ETS-related genes (C33A11.4, F19F10.5 and F57A8.1) to investigate their biological significance. An additional ETS mutant (F22A3.1) created by the C. elegans Gene Knockout Consortium was also analyzed. Our phenotypic analysis found the mutants lacked any discernable abnormalities, suggesting that there may be functional redundancy amongst C. elegans ETS genes. Additionally, transgenic worm lines were generated for four C. elegans ETS genes (F22A3.1, C33A11.4, F57A8.1 and C42D8.4) carrying transcriptional green fluorescent protein (GFP) reporter constructs to analyze their gene expression patterns. Our results revealed hypodermal-specific, neuronal-specific, ubiquitous and neuronal-specific expression profiles, respectively. This highly restricted pattern of expression suggests that ETS genes in C. elegans may be involved in regulating the differentiation of specific cell lineages.
