INTRODUCTION. A fully grown C. elegans oocyte is a large cell wi a volume equivalent to e 558 cells it will generate during embryogenesis. Oocytes are ovulated every ∼23 minutes, a rate of biosyn esis at is equivalent to e entire gonad doubling in size every 6.5 hours (Hirsh et al., 1976. McCarter et al., 1999).Most of e grow of e oocyte occurs during stages when its nucleus. 01, · e C. elegans genome encodes six vitellogenin genes (vit-1 to vit-6). Using a vit-2::GFP strain, we found at SKN-1 activation increased e protein levels of VIT-2, and e overexpression of vit-2 compromised heat stress response, which phenocopied e skn-1 gof mutation. 01, · To confirm ese results, we fur er supplemented e C. elegans diet wi OA, [C18:1(n-9), 0.2 mM].
