    Wodarz A, Ramrath A, Kuchinke U, Knust E. Bazooka provides an apical cue for Inscuteable localization in Drosophila neuroblasts. Nature. 1999;402:544-7 pubmed
    ..As Bazooka is also responsible for the maintenance of apical-basal polarity in epithelial tissues, it may be the missing link between epithelial polarity and neuroblast polarity. ..

    Wodarz A. Tumor suppressors: linking cell polarity and growth control. Curr Biol. 2000;10:R624-6 pubmed
    ..Mutations in any of these genes lead to loss of apical-basal cell polarity and overproliferation of epithelia, revealing a close connection between cytoarchitecture and growth control. ..
