Abstract
Recent studies have shown that secreted Wnt proteins control morphogenetic movements in fish and frog embryos. The analysis of Dishevelled, a cytoplas mic mediator of Wnt signalling, reveals unexpected similarity between gastr ulation in vertebrates and polarization of cells in Drosophila epithelial.
