    ..Altogether, our work links transport of SCG10 to the regulation of microtubule dynamics in the axon growth cone and enhances our understanding of this process during axon outgrowth. ..

    ..In this issue of Developmental Cell, Wang et al. (2018) identify the extracellular matrix protein Anosmin1 as a key regulator of Fgf diffusion during sensory organ formation in zebrafish. ..

    ..This previously unrecognized mechanism may be applicable to understanding segmentation and morphogenesis in other organ systems. ..
  4. McGraw H, Culbertson M, Nechiporuk A. Kremen1 restricts Dkk activity during posterior lateral line development in zebrafish. Development. 2014;141:3212-21 pubmed publisher
    ..Based on our data, we propose a novel mechanism in which Kremen1 modulates Wnt activity by restricting the range of secreted Dkk proteins during collective cell migration in the pLLP. ..
