    ..These findings are discussed in the context of current hypotheses on the role of cadherins in establishing the spatial structure of the embryo. ..
  2. Schumacher D, Schaumburg Lever G. Ultrastructural localization of alpha-3 integrin subunit in malignant melanoma and adjacent epidermis. J Cutan Pathol. 1999;26:321-6 pubmed
    ..Compared to normal epidermis alpha3-labeling was stronger in tissues of malignant melanoma. ..
  3. Moussian B, Söding J, Schwarz H, NUSSLEIN VOLHARD C. Retroactive, a membrane-anchored extracellular protein related to vertebrate snake neurotoxin-like proteins, is required for cuticle organization in the larva of Drosophila melanogaster. Dev Dyn. 2005;233:1056-63 pubmed
    ..We propose that this binding function of Rtv may assist the organization of chitin fibers at the epidermal cell surface during cuticle assembly. ..
  4. Harris M, Rohner N, Schwarz H, Perathoner S, Konstantinidis P, NUSSLEIN VOLHARD C. Zebrafish eda and edar mutants reveal conserved and ancestral roles of ectodysplasin signaling in vertebrates. PLoS Genet. 2008;4:e1000206 pubmed publisher
    ..Lastly, our findings point to the utility of adult genetic screens in the zebrafish in identifying essential developmental processes involved in human disease and in morphological evolution. ..
  5. Kizil C, Otto G, Geisler R, NUSSLEIN VOLHARD C, Antos C. Simplet controls cell proliferation and gene transcription during zebrafish caudal fin regeneration. Dev Biol. 2009;325:329-40 pubmed publisher
    ..Taken together, these data indicate a requirement for smp in fin regeneration through control of cell proliferation, the regulation of specific genes and proper bone patterning. ..
  6. Osterauer R, Köhler H, Triebskorn R. Histopathological alterations and induction of hsp70 in ramshorn snail (Marisa cornuarietis) and zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos after exposure to PtCl(2). Aquat Toxicol. 2010;99:100-7 pubmed publisher
    ..The hsp70 level in M. cornuarietis did not show an increase following Pt exposure whereas it was significantly elevated at 100 micorg/L PtCl(2) in D. rerio. ..
  7. Norum M, TÃ¥ng E, Chavoshi T, Schwarz H, Linke D, Uv A, et al. Trafficking through COPII stabilises cell polarity and drives secretion during Drosophila epidermal differentiation. PLoS ONE. 2010;5:e10802 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results indicate that COPII vesicles constitute a central hub for these processes. ..

    ..We conclude that at least two modules--an apical protein-chitin lattice and the lateral septate junctions, act in parallel to ensure Drosophila skin impermeability. ..

    ..Mutants unable to express the inhibitor fail to arrest cell proliferation after mitosis 16 and progress through an extra division cycle. Conversely, premature dacapo expression in transgenic embryos results in a precocious G1 arrest. ..
