    The cAMP effector PKA mediates Moody GPCR signaling in Drosophila blood–brain barrier formation and maturation

    Xiaoling Li et al.
    A polarized Moody/protein kinase A pathway plays an unrecognized central role in controlling the enormous cell growth and blood–brain barrier integrity in a highly coordinated spatiotemporal manner in brain homeostasis.

    Stepwise polarisation of developing bilayered epidermis is mediated by aPKC and E-cadherin in zebrafish

    Prateek Arora et al.
    Polarity cascade initiated by aPKC in the periderm is transduced by adherens junction component E-cadherin to the basal epidermis during the development of zebrafish bilayered epidermis.

    Asymmetric recruitment and actin-dependent cortical flows drive the neuroblast polarity cycle

    Chet Huan Oon, Kenneth E Prehoda
    Neural stem cells dynamically polarize through the stepwise activity of polarized cortical targeting and cortical flows that coalescence discontinuous cortical patches into an organized cap structure.

    Apical PAR complex proteins protect against programmed epithelial assaults to create a continuous and functional intestinal lumen

    Maria Danielle Sallee et al.
    During intestinal development, apical PAR complex proteins keep apical domains and junctions continuous between cells as they divide and elongate, and ultimately build a continuous functional tube.

    Activation of Discs large by aPKC aligns the mitotic spindle to the polarity axis during asymmetric cell division

    Ognjen Golub et al.
    The Par complex controls spindle orientation during asymmetric cell division by phosphorylating the tumor suppressor Discs large, overcoming its autoinhibited state, and allowing it to bind the microtubule-binding protein GukHolder.

    Pak1 and PP2A antagonize aPKC function to support cortical tension induced by the Crumbs-Yurt complex

    Cornelia Biehler et al.
    Cell biology analyses in Drosophila epithelial tissues reveal novel mechanisms connecting epithelial polarity proteins with Myosin-dependent cell contractility.

    Human embryo polarization requires PLC signaling to mediate trophectoderm specification

    Meng Zhu et al.
    Functional analyses of in vitro fertilized, preimplanation human embryos reveal that the first lineage segregation depends on cell polarization signaling that is regulated by Phospholipase C (PLC) activity.

    HIPPO signaling resolves embryonic cell fate conflicts during establishment of pluripotency in vivo

    Tristan Frum et al.
    HIPPO signaling antagonizes the apical domain of polarized cells, driving cell internalization, regulated gene expression, and cell fate change during formation of pluripotent stem cell progenitors in the mouse embryo.

    Compensation for PKMζ in long-term potentiation and spatial long-term memory in mutant mice

    Panayiotis Tsokas et al.
    The enzyme PKMzeta is crucial for the maintenance of long-term memories, but a closely related enzyme provides a back-up should PKMzeta fail, thus explaining the controversy over why deleting the gene for PKMzeta may not appear to impair memory.

    A polarity pathway for exocyst-dependent intracellular tube extension

    Joshua Abrams, Jeremy Nance
    Lumen extension in intracellular tubes relies on a molecular pathway involving Rho GTPase signaling, cell polarity, and vesicle-tethering proteins.
