    Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Bergen, Arstadveien 19, N 5009, Bergen, Norway
    Mech Dev 120:270-6. 2003
    ..Moreover, our results suggest that Slit1 signaling may be involved in the regulation of molar tooth shape by regulating epithelial cell proliferation and formation of EFA of the crown...
  55. ncbi Mouse strain-specific patterns of mammary epithelial ductal side branching are elicited by stromal factors
    Matthew J Naylor
    Cancer Research Program, Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Darlinghurst, NSW, Australia
    Dev Dyn 225:100-5. 2002
    ..Regardless of underlying mechanism, transplantation without regard to the genetic background of the stromal donor, whether inbred or mixed, will compromise experiments with side branching and associated gene expression endpoints...
  56. ncbi WNT signals are required for the initiation of hair follicle development
    Thomas Andl
    Department of Dermatology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
    Dev Cell 2:643-53. 2002
    ..This phenotype indicates that activation of WNT signaling in the skin precedes, and is required for, localized expression of regulatory genes and initiation of hair follicle placode formation...
  57. ncbi Regulation of hair follicle development by the TNF signal ectodysplasin and its receptor Edar
    Johanna Laurikkala
    Institute of Biotechnology, Viikki Biocenter, 00014 University of Helsinki, Finland
    Development 129:2541-53. 2002
    ..In conclusion, we suggest that Eda and Edar are associated with the onset of ectodermal patterning and that ectodysplasin/edar signaling also regulates the morphogenesis of hair follicles...
  58. ncbi Wnt-6 is expressed in the ureter bud and induces kidney tubule development in vitro
    Petri Itäranta
    Biocenter Oulu, Department of Biochemistry, University of Oulu, Linnanmaa 90570 Oulu, Finland
    Genesis 32:259-68. 2002
    ..Wnt-6 also induces a secondary axis in early Xenopus embryos. We conclude that Wnt-6 is a candidate for the ureter epithelium-derived signal that leads to activation of kidney tubulogenesis via Wnt-4...
  59. ncbi Wnt7b regulates placental development in mice
    B A Parr
    MCD Biology, University of Colorado, 347 UCB, Boulder, Colorado 80309 0347, USA
    Dev Biol 237:324-32. 2001
    ..Wnt7b also is required for normal organization of cells in the chorionic plate. Thus, Wnt7b signaling is central to the early stages of placental development in mammals...
  60. pmc Differential regulation of the Wnt gene family during pregnancy and lactation suggests a role in postnatal development of the mammary gland
    B J Gavin
    Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Roche Institute of Molecular Biology, Roche Research Center, Nutley, New Jersey 07110
    Mol Cell Biol 12:2418-23. 1992
    ..We propose that Wnt-mediated signalling is involved in normal regulation of mammary development and that inappropriate expression of Wnt-1, Wnt-3, and possibly other family members can interfere with these signalling pathways...
  61. pmc Activation of the Wnt-beta catenin pathway in a cell population on the surface of the forebrain is essential for the establishment of olfactory axon connections
    Ambra A Zaghetto
    Dulbecco Telethon Institute Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche Institute for Biomedical Technologies Milano, 20090 Segrate, Italy
    J Neurosci 27:9757-68. 2007
    ..These data reveal a novel function for Wnt signaling in the establishment of periphery-CNS olfactory connections and highlight a complex interplay between cells of different embryonic origin for ORN axon connectivity...
