CEH-32

CELE_W05E10.3, W05E10.3
ceh-32 encodes a Six/sine oculis-type homeodomain protein most closely related to the Six3/6 subfamily that contains Drosophila OPTIX and human SIX3 (OMIM:603714, which when mutated leads to holoprosencephaly 2); CEH-32 appears to be essential for development and required for proper head morphogenesis; during embryogenesis, CEH-32 is expressed in hypodermal and neuronal precursors, and at later stages, in the descendants of these cells and in gonadal sheath cells; in some hypodermal cells, ceh-32 is a direct transcriptional target of VAB-3, a PAX-6 ortholog sufficient to induce ceh-32 expression in some cell types and able to bind the ceh-32 promoter in vitro.
