    Regions within a single epidermal cell of Drosophila can be planar polarised independently

    Miguel Rovira et al.
    Building on previous work (Saaverda et al., 2014), we show that the Dachsous/Fat system can polarise different parts of a single cell in opposite ways in the Drosophila larva.

    Wnt proteins can direct planar cell polarity in vertebrate ectoderm

    Chih-Wen Chu, Sergei Y Sokol
    Vertebrate early ectoderm displays planar polarity manifested by a fluorescent sensor and this polarity can be instructed by Wnt ligands.

    Nuclear receptor NR4A is required for patterning at the ends of the planarian anterior-posterior axis

    Dayan J Li et al.
    NR4A is a broadly conserved transcription factor that is required for concordance of patterning information and anatomy at both ends of the planarian anterior-posterior axis.

    Coordination of planar cell polarity pathways through Spiny-legs

    Abhijit A Ambegaonkar, Kenneth D Irvine
    A direct connection between distinct planar cell polarity systems orients cells, answering long-standing questions regarding the relationship between systems and the orientation of cell polarity.

    Egr-5 is a post-mitotic regulator of planarian epidermal differentiation

    Kimberly C Tu et al.
    The dynamic homeostasis of the planarian epidermis serves as an experimental paradigm to study stem cell dynamics and post-mitotic specification of diverse functional cell fates.

    Plasticity of both planar cell polarity and cell identity during the development of Drosophila

    Pedro Saavedra et al.
    In the Drosophila larval epidermis both the cell identity and polarity of individual cells change as a result of cell rearrangements.

    Cellular interpretation of the long-range gradient of Four-jointed activity in the Drosophila wing

    Rosalind Hale et al.
    Opposing gradients of Fat and Dachsous phosphorylation are sufficient to explain the observed pattern of Fat-Dachsous planar polarisation across the Drosophila wing.

    Flattop regulates basal body docking and positioning in mono- and multiciliated cells

    Moritz Gegg et al.
    In cell types that acquire planar cell polarity, the protein Flattop regulates basal body docking and positioning.

    A bioactive peptide amidating enzyme is required for ciliogenesis

    Dhivya Kumar et al.
    Analysis of Chlamydomonas, planaria and mice reveals a novel and unanticipated role for a peptide amidating enzyme in primary and motile ciliary assembly through effects on post-Golgi trafficking.

    Pathogenic shifts in endogenous microbiota impede tissue regeneration via distinct activation of TAK1/MKK/p38

    Christopher P Arnold et al.
    An innate immune system signaling pathway in planarians has a dual role: it enhances apoptosis during bacterial infection, but represses apoptosis during tissue regeneration in the absence of infection.
