    Lorenza Ciani
    Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, University College London, London WC1E 6BT, UK
    Nat Rev Neurosci 6:351-62. 2005
    ..This knowledge provides a framework for the study of the mechanisms by which WNTs regulate diverse neuronal functions. Manipulation of the WNT pathways could provide new strategies for nerve regeneration and neuronal circuit modulation...

    Lorenza Ciani
    Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, University College London, London, UK
    BMC Cell Biol 8:27. 2007
    ..A divergent Wnt-Dvl canonical pathway which bifurcates downstream of Gsk3beta regulates MT dynamics...
  3. pmc Signaling across the synapse: a role for Wnt and Dishevelled in presynaptic assembly and neurotransmitter release
    Azlina Ahmad-Annuar
    Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, University College London, London WC1E 6BT, England, UK
    J Cell Biol 174:127-39. 2006
    ..These findings demonstrate that Wnts signal across the synapse on Dvl-expressing presynaptic terminals to regulate synaptic assembly and suggest a potential novel function for Wnts in neurotransmitter release...

    Lorenza Ciani
    Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, University College London, University Street, London WC1E 6BT, UK
    Neuron 57:3-4. 2008
    ..In this issue of Neuron, Saneyoshi et al. identify a new signaling complex containing CaMKK/CaMKI/betaPIX/Rac that regulates the morphogenesis of spines in an activity-dependent manner...
  5. pmc A divergent canonical WNT-signaling pathway regulates microtubule dynamics: dishevelled signals locally to stabilize microtubules
    Lorenza Ciani
    Department of Biological Sciences, Imperial College London, London SW7 2AZ, England, UK
    J Cell Biol 164:243-53. 2004
    ..Our data indicate a bifurcation in the so-called canonical WNT-signaling pathway to regulate microtubule stability...
