    Major muscle cell types in the C. elegans adult hermaphrodite.This schematic depicts major muscle cell types in the C. elegans adult hermaphrodite.  A lateral view is provided, with anterior to the left and dorsal on top, of the major muscle types of the nematode C. elegans.

    The transcriptional cascade is shown for embryonically derived bodywall muscle (BWM) cells.The transcriptional cascade is shown for embryonically derived bodywall muscle (BWM) cells.  The C. elegans gene name is indicated in lowercase for each transcription factor, and the names of related factors in mammals are in uppercase.  The number of BWM cells derived by each part of the process is indicated parenthetically.The transcriptional cascade is shown for embryonically derived bodywall muscle (BWM) cells.Enlarge
    Images of master myogenic regulatory transcription factor function in C. elegans.Images of master myogenic regulatory transcription factor function in C. elegans are depicted.  At left is the wild-type pattern of bodywall muscle development at the 1.5-fold stage of embryogenesis.  The image at the right shows the consequences of expressing the master muscle transcription factor HLH-1 in early blastomeres; almost all embryonic cells adopte the bodywall muscle-like fate.  Images of master myogenic regulatory transcription factor function in C. elegans.Enlarge
