    Pituitary stem cells produce paracrine WNT signals to control the expansion of their descendant progenitor cells

    John P Russell et al.
    Stem cells of the pituitary gland contribute to organ growth cell non-autonomously by promoting proliferation of committed progenitors through WNT ligand secretion.

    Cohesin mutations are synthetic lethal with stimulation of WNT signaling

    Chue Vin Chin et al.
    Hypersensitivity of cohesin-deficient cells to Wnt signaling is concomitant with beta catenin stabilization and offers promise that Wnt agonists could be therapeutically effective in cohesin mutant cancers.

    Opposing JAK-STAT and Wnt signaling gradients define a stem cell domain by regulating differentiation at two borders

    David Melamed, Daniel Kalderon
    Graded Wnt and JAK-STAT signals regulate the division rate, AP location and differentiation of Drosophila ovarian follicle stem cells to define a domain of stem cells maintained by population asymmetry.

    The tumor suppressor PTPRK promotes ZNRF3 internalization and is required for Wnt inhibition in the Spemann organizer

    Ling-Shih Chang et al.
    Two cancer related proteins, tyrosine phosphatase PTPRK and ubiquitin ligase ZNRF3, interact to downregulate Wnt receptors, thereby regulating Spemann organizer function during Xenopus development.

    Gradient-independent Wnt signaling instructs asymmetric neurite pruning in C. elegans

    Menghao Lu, Kota Mizumoto
    Genetic analyses revealed the critical role of local Wnt in neuronal patterning by instructing neurite pruning.

    Dkk2 promotes neural crest specification by activating Wnt/β-catenin signaling in a GSK3β independent manner

    Arun Devotta et al.
    Dkk2, a member of the Dikkopf family of Wnt antagonists, acts as a positive regulator of Wnt signaling during neural crest formation.

    WNT signaling memory is required for ACTIVIN to function as a morphogen in human gastruloids

    Anna Yoney et al.
    The requirement for WNT signaling in mesendoderm differentiation is temporally separate from that of ACTIVIN signaling and acts to switch the output of ACTIVIN/SMAD2 from pluripotency maintenance to mesendoderm patterning.

    A novel GSK3-regulated APC:Axin interaction regulates Wnt signaling by driving a catalytic cycle of efficient βcatenin destruction

    Mira I Pronobis et al.
    A new dynamic mechanistic model explains how the destruction complex negatively regulates Wnt signaling in development and oncogenesis.

    Wnt3 distribution in the zebrafish brain is determined by expression, diffusion and multiple molecular interactions

    Sapthaswaran Veerapathiran et al.
    Wnt3 accomplishes long-range distribution by extracellular diffusion controlled by expression, tissue morphology, interactions with heparan sulfate proteoglycans, and co-receptor-mediated receptor binding to regulate brain development in zebrafish embryos.

    Wnt/PCP controls spreading of Wnt/β-catenin signals by cytonemes in vertebrates

    Benjamin Mattes et al.
    Wnt signaling regulates its effective signaling range by controlling Wnt ligand transport on signaling filopodia within vertebrate tissues.
