Wild-type hermaphrodite in the L4 stage following heat-shock treatment. c. HS::let-60(G12V) hermaphrodite in the L3 stage following heat-shock treatment, showing a Clr phenotype. d. Wild-type hermaphrodite in the L3 stage following heat-shock treatment. Scale bars, 10uM.
Figure 2 c. Western blot analysis of MAP kinase activation. Top panel shows staining using monoclonal antibodies specific for the phosphorylated form of mammalian MAP kinase. Bottom panel shows staining using monoclonal antibodies against total mammalian MAP kinase protein. Columns refer to hours following heat-shock treatment in the time courses for HS::let-60(G12V) and wild-type strains. Sizes of molecular weight standards (Kd) are indicated. mpk-1 expresses two forms of MAP kinase protein by alternative splicing [Lackner, 1998], but only one form was stained by the anti-phospho-MAP kinase monoclonal antibody.
Figure 3 a. Pie chart shows the distribution of 297 let-60-regulated genes. Gene annotations were derived from Proteome, and were used to manually place genes into functional classes. Numbers of genes in each class are shown, and do not include 411 genes that encode novel proteins. PC users may click the colored portions of the pie chart to view the gene lists and click the center to view the entire gene list. Mac users can go to page Supplemental Tables to view the gene lists.

G protein-coupled receptors. f. Cell surface glycoproteins. g. Drug resistance proteins. h. Metalloproteases. Genes discussed in the paper are indicated. Scale shows level of expression.

Figure 5. Shown are the expression of 34 genes in the
let-60(G12V) time course, the
let-60(n1046) time course compared to the wild-type
time course (let-60(n1046)/WT), the let-23
time course compared to the wild-type time course
(let-23/WT) and the let-60 time course
compared to the let-23(sy1) developmental time
courses let-60(n1046)/let-23). These genes showed
stronger regulation in the let-60(n1046)/WT time
course than in the let-23/WT time course. Scale
