Expression pattern of mdf-2 in Caenorhabditis elegans
The spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) is a surveillance mechanism that delays the metaphase-to-anaphase transition until all of the kinetochores have properly attached to the mitotic spindle, thus preventing chromosome instability. Spatio-temporal expression analysis of eight conserved SAC components in C. elegans shows that these genes are all expressed ubiquitously during early embryonic stages but only in a subset of specific tissues at later developmental stages. Shown is the expression pattern of the GFP driven by the mdf-2 promoter (GFP fusion, green, top) in a late embryo (DIC, bottom).
