Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_F38E1.7, F38E1.7
mom-2 encodes a member of the Wnt family of secreted signaling glycoproteins that is required for induction of endodermal (gut) tissue in the 4-cell stage embryo; MOM-2, required in the inducing blastomere (P2) at the 4-cell stage, may be the ligand for MOM-5, a Frizzled homolog, thought to act in the receiving blastomere (EMS); MOM-2 genetically interacts in the same pathway as KIN-19, but parallel to APR-1; MOM-2 also may be a ligand for LIN-18, a Ryk homolog.
