Cell invasion is a tightly controlled process occurring during development and tumor progression. The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans serves as a genetic model to study cell invasion during normal development. In the third larval stage, the anchor cell in the somatic gonad first induces and then invades the adjacent epidermal vulval precursor cells. The homolog of the Evi-1 oncogene, egl-43, is necessary for basement membrane destruction and anchor cell invasion. egl-43 is part of a regulatory network mediating cell invasion downstream of the fos-1 proto-oncogene. In addition, EGL-43 is required to specify the cell fates of ventral uterus cells downstream of or in parallel with LIN-12 NOTCH. Comparison with mammalian Evi-1 suggests a conserved pathway controlling cell invasion and cell fate specification.
