    Development 127:5113-22. 2000
    ..As Notch is maternally expressed in macromeres, additional components must be downstream of nuclear beta-catenin in macromeres for these cells to receive and transduce the micromere induction signal...

    Development 126:1703-13. 1999
    ..Taken together, these results offer compelling evidence that LvNotch signaling directly specifies the SMC fate, and that this signaling is critical for the differential specification of SMCs and endoderm in the sea urchin embryo...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 93:6808-13. 1996
