The prig-6RIG-6::GFP construct drives expression of all RIG-6 isoforms in fusion with GFP, under their endogenous promoter. rig-6
expression is detected during embryogenesis and is maintained throughout adulthood. rig-6
is expressed in I1 and I3 pharyngeal interneurons, NSM motor neurons and other unidentified head neurons. RIG-6::GFP is also localized in the cell bodies and axons of different subtypes of VNC motorneurons, in the HSN and the CAN neurons. Neuronal expression of rig-6
also includes the ALM and PLM touch receptor neurons. Non-neuronal cells expressing rig-6
include somatic muscles and the hypodermis. We also detected rig-6
expression in the developing and adult EC.
