    ..These results indicate that either the DIX or DEP domain of DSH-2 is capable of activating the Wnt/beta-catenin asymmetry pathway and regulating anterior-posterior fate decisions required for proper morphogenesis. ..

    ..Functions of the MIG-5 DEP, PDZ and DIX domains were also conserved. Thus, a novel PCP-like pathway, in which LIN-17 and MIG-5 are asymmetrically localized, is involved in the regulation of B cell polarity. ..

    ..Overall, we have further defined the role of Dishevelled in the WβA signaling pathway, and demonstrated that DSH-2 and MIG-5 regulate cell fate, β-catenin nuclear levels and the polarity of β-catenin regulation. ..
