    ..This PE culture method allows for the ex vivo analysis of specific growth factors on PE and epicardial development with greater efficiency and precision than existing epicardial culture methods. ..

    ..Finally, we find that Wnt3a/β-catenin signaling directs trunk progenitors towards PMP fates; however, our data also suggest that Wnt3a positively supports a progenitor state for both mesodermal and neural progenitors. ..

    ..Our data provide new insights into how cell fate decisions are imposed by the expression of a single transcriptional regulator. ..

    ..However, deleting Daam1 further disrupted Wnt5a homozygous-null hearts, suggesting that DAAM1 also has Wnt5a-independent roles in cardiac development. ..
  5. Kennedy M, Chalamalasetty R, Thomas S, Garriock R, Jailwala P, Yamaguchi T. Sp5 and Sp8 recruit β-catenin and Tcf1-Lef1 to select enhancers to activate Wnt target gene transcription. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2016;113:3545-50 pubmed publisher
    ..Because Sp5 is itself directly activated by Wnt signals, we propose that Sp5 is a Wnt/β-catenin pathway-specific transcript on factor that functions in a feed-forward loop to robustly activate select Wnt target genes. ..

    ..We propose that Zfp703 is a novel feedback suppressor of Wnt/?-catenin signaling that functions by inhibiting the association of ?-catenin with Tcf1 on Wnt response elements in target gene enhancers. ..

    ..These data indicate that the exogenously expressed Wnt3a stimulates the Wnt/?-catenin signaling pathway, as expected. The Rosa26(Wnt3a) mouse line should prove to be an invaluable tool to study the function of Wnt3a in vivo. ..
