    Development 125:4729-38. 1998

  5. ncbi Wingless signaling generates pattern through two distinct mechanisms
    R Hays
    Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Cell Biology, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 60208 3500, USA
    Development 124:3727-36. 1997
    ..Finally, we demonstrate that an 85 amino acid region not conserved in vertebrate Wnts is dispensable for Wg function and we discuss structural features of the Wingless protein required for its distinct biological activities...

    J Cell Biol 146:1303-18. 1999
