- The Drosophila homolog of the Exo84 exocyst subunit promotes apical epithelial identityJ Todd Blankenship
Developmental Biology Program, Sloan Kettering Institute, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY 10021, USA
J Cell Sci 120:3099-110. 2007..These results suggest that epithelial polarity in the Drosophila embryo is actively maintained by exocyst-dependent apical localization of the Crumbs transmembrane protein...
- Rho-kinase directs Bazooka/Par-3 planar polarity during Drosophila axis elongationSérgio de Matos Simões
Developmental Biology Program, Sloan Kettering Institute, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065, USA
Dev Cell 19:377-88. 2010..These results demonstrate that Rho-kinase plays an instructive role in planar polarity by targeting Baz/Par-3 and myosin II to complementary cortical domains...
- Multicellular rosette formation links planar cell polarity to tissue morphogenesisJ Todd Blankenship
Developmental Biology Program, Sloan Kettering Institute, New York, New York 10021, USA
Dev Cell 11:459-70. 2006..We propose that the generation of higher-order rosette structures links local cell interactions to global tissue reorganization during morphogenesis...
- Multicellular dynamics during epithelial elongationJennifer A Zallen
Developmental Biology Program, Sloan Kettering Institute, New York, NY 10065, USA
Semin Cell Dev Biol 19:263-70. 2008..Quantitative analysis of cell behavior in living embryos reveals unexpected cell population dynamics that include the formation of multicellular rosette structures as well as local neighbor exchange...
