    M Llimargas
    Institut de Biologia Molecular de Barcelona IBMB, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas CSIC, C Jordi Girona 18 26, 08034 Barcelona, Spain
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:14487-92. 2001
    ..We suggest that the main advantage of retaining a number of similar genes is that it allows more subtle forms of control and more flexibility during evolution...

    Marta Llimargas
    Institut de Biologia Molecular de Barcelona, CSIC, 08034 Barcelona, Spain
    Development 131:181-90. 2004
    ..In addition, mutations in genes encoding other components of the SJs produce a similar tracheal phenotype. These results point out a new role of the SJs in morphogenesis regulating cell adhesion and cell size...

    J Cell Sci 124:240-51. 2011
    ..This hypothesis is supported by the phenotype of lethal giant larvae (lgl); crb double mutants. These results unveil a link between Crb and the organisation of the actin cytoskeleton during morphogenesis...
