Although the signal was very faint, expression of the full-length mig-24
::venus translational fusion construct in hermaphrodites, which fully rescues the mig-24
phenotype, was detected only in DTC nuclei. Expression of mig-24
::venus was observed in males, where the signal was detected specifically in MLCs from L2 through L4 stages. Thus, MIG-24 is expressed specifically in gonadal leader cells both in hermaphrodites and males.
