Planar cell polarity
- Planar cell polarity: the Dachsous/Fat system contributes differently to the embryonic and larval stages of Drosophila
Summary: Drosophila utilises the Ds/Ft system differently as it develops. Localised expression of four-jointed in the tendon cells may help polarise all rows of denticles in late larval stages.
- Prickle isoforms control the direction of tissue polarity by microtubule independent and dependent mechanisms
Summary: Learning how Pk and Sple differentially interpret directional cues allows a broader understanding of the varied signals and mechanisms linking the core module to tissue axes in planar cell polarity.
