Published: 9 August 2019
.... In the Drosophila wing epithelium, an extracellular gradient of the Wnt1 homolog Wingless (Wg) was observed extending over several cells away from producing cells. Surprisingly, however, it was also shown that a membrane-tethered Neurotactin-Wg fusion protein (NRT-Wg) can largely replace endogenous Wg, leading...

... and pattern. Thus, the surviving cells have to undergo additional proliferation to compensate for the cell loss. The finding that apoptotic cells ectopically express dpp and wg suggested that ectopic Dpp/Wg signalling might be responsible for compensatory proliferation. We have tested this hypothesis...

... must be tightly regulated. We have investigated the mechanisms of this regulation in the Drosophila hinge, a domain within the wing imaginal disc that depends on the fly Wnt1 ortholog wingless ( wg ) for its proliferation. Our results uncover a new feedback loop in the wg pathway in which the spatially...

... mutations in the fly Wnt homolog, wingless ( wg ). We find that loss-of-function mutations in the neural determinant SoxNeuro (also known as Sox-neuro,SoxN ) partially suppress wg mutant pattern defects. SoxN encodes a HMG-box-containing protein related to the vertebrate Sox1, Sox2 and Sox3 proteins, which...

... adhesion protein DE-Cadherin (DE-Cad)regulates epithelial cell-cell adhesion at adherens junctions (AJs). Here, we show that along the proximodistal (PD) axis of the developing wing epithelium,apical cell shapes and expression of DE-Cad are graded in response to Wingless (Wg), a morphogen secreted from...

...) to induce all dorsal mesodermal tissue derivatives, which include dorsal somatic muscles, the dorsal vessel and visceral muscles of the midgut. Wingless (Wg)signals modulate the responses to Dpp/Tin along anteroposterior positions by cooperating with Dpp/Tin during dorsal vessel and somatic muscle induction...

...Yi A. Zeng; Esther M. Verheyen The cellular events that govern patterning during animal development must be precisely regulated. This is achieved by extrinsic factors and through the action of both positive and negative feedback loops. Wnt/Wg signals are crucial across species in many developmental...

... implicated PP2A in Wg/Wnt signaling. However, reports on the precise nature of PP2A role in Wg/Wnt pathway in different organisms are conflicting. We show that twins ( tws ), which codes for the B/PR55 regulatory subunit of PP2A in Drosophila , is a positive regulator of Wg/Wnt signaling. In tws - wing discs...

Interestingly, tsh has different functions in the dorsal and ventral eye, suppressing eye development close to the ventral margin, while promoting eye development near the dorsal margin. It affects both growth...
