    ..We propose that Meis1 is at the core of a genetic network implicated in eye patterning/microphthalmia, and represents an additional candidate for syndromic cases of these ocular malformations. ..

    Claveria C, Torres M. Cell Competition: Mechanisms and Physiological Roles. Annu Rev Cell Dev Biol. 2016;32:411-439 pubmed
    ..Cell competition plays essential roles in quality control, homeostasis, and repair of developing and adult tissues, and depending on the context, it may function as a tumor-suppressing or tumor-promoting mechanism. ..

    ..These results show that the capacity for cell competition in mammals is not restricted to stem cell populations and suggest that stimulated cell competition has potential as a cardiomyocyte-replacement strategy. ..

    ..Here we concentrate on reviewing patterning mechanisms along the P-D and A-P axes, in which different mechanisms converge and interact to pattern segmented structures. ..

    ..We review here the main interactions described between the three axial systems of the developing limb and discuss their relevance to proper limb growth and patterning. ..

    ..In the mouse embryo, cell competition promotes pluripotency maintenance by elimination of primed lineages before gastrulation. The mechanism described here is relevant to mammalian embryo development and induced pluripotency. ..
