    ..elegans gastrulation: in addition to apical constriction, internalization of the endoderm might involve dynamic Arp2/3-dependent F-actin-rich extensions on one side of a ring of cells...

    Science 335:1232-5. 2012
    ..Thus, apical constriction appears to be triggered not by a change in cortical tension, but by dynamic linking of apical cell-cell contact zones to an already contractile apical cortex...

    Adam D Werts
    Biology Department, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC 27599, USA
    Development 138:4411-22. 2011
    ..These results highlight the role of dynamic TPR-GoLoco protein localization as a key mediator of mitotic spindle alignment in response to instructive, external cues...

    Dev Biol 341:5-19. 2010
    ..Here, we review this effort to explore the diversity of mechanisms of apical constriction, the diversity of roles that apical constriction plays in development, and the common themes that emerge from comparing systems...
