  1. doi request reprint Cytoskeletal dynamics and supracellular organisation of cell shape fluctuations during dorsal closure
    Guy B Blanchard
    Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    Development 137:2743-52. 2010
    ..Our results suggest that cell shape fluctuations are a property of cells with low and increasing levels of apical myosin, and that medial and junctional myosin populations combine to contract AS cell apices and drive DC...
  2. doi request reprint Dynamics of actomyosin contractile activity during epithelial morphogenesis
    Nicole Gorfinkiel
    Centro de Biologia Molecular Severo Ochoa, CSIC UAM, Cantoblanco 28049, Madrid, Spain
    Curr Opin Cell Biol 23:531-9. 2011
    ..Pulsatile contractions, polarized cell organization and various stiffening ratchet mechanisms combine to provide a rich variety of options for robust epithelial tissue remodelling...

    Alfonso Martinez-Arias
    Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    Int J Dev Biol 53:1179-91. 2009
    ..The person of Antonio Garcia-Bellido has emerged over the last 40 years as a reference for modern genetics and also as the root of an important, perhaps the only, real school in this area of work...
  4. pmc Emergent material properties of developing epithelial tissues
    Pedro F Machado
    Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EH, UK
    BMC Biol 13:98. 2015
    ..5-6 min. Linking these two timescales and understanding how pulsatile contractions drive morphogenetic movements is an urgent challenge...
  5. pmc Wingless signalling alters the levels, subcellular distribution and dynamics of Armadillo and E-cadherin in third instar larval wing imaginal discs
    Ildiko M L Somorjai
    Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 3:e2893. 2008
    ..In the absence of ligand, Armadillo is phosphorylated and targeted to the proteasome. Upon binding of Wg to its receptors, the "degradation complex" is inhibited; Armadillo is stabilised and enters the nucleus to transcribe targets...
