    • How Does Wnt Signaling Posteriorize the Neural Plate? 

      Lee, Jeffrey Joon Taek (2013-02-04)
      Early in vertebrate development, the neural plate, from which the central nervous system forms, is subdivided into four gross domains through a process called patterning. Defects in neural plate patterning can have severe ...
    • Molecular analysis of placodal development in zebrafish 

      Phillips, Bryan T. (Texas A&M University, 2006-04-12)
      Vertebrates have evolved a unique way to sense their environment: placodallyderived sense organs. These sensory structures emerge from a crescent-shaped domain, the preplacodal domain, which surrounds the anterior neural ...
    • Sex-Determination and WNT Pathways Regulate Developmental Muscle Remodeling in C. elegans 

      Chen, Xin (2016-11-23)
      In response to altered physiological demands, cardiac muscles remodel their muscle mass and contractile properties to sustain muscle performance. However, dramatic alterations of the sarcomere structure are rarely observed ...
    • The Role of Sp1 Family Genes in Wnt Mediated Neural Plate Patterning 

      Mohanty, Saurav (2017-12-11)
      Wnt signaling has a conserved role in anterior-posterior (A-P) patterning of the remarkably complex vertebrate brain from a very basic primordium, the neural plate, by differentially regulating downstream target genes to ...
