    Structure of human Frizzled5 by fiducial-assisted cryo-EM supports a heterodimeric mechanism of canonical Wnt signaling

    Naotaka Tsutsumi et al.
    Cryo-EM structure of monomeric human Frizzled5 was determined with a universal fiducial antibody at 3.7 Å overall resolution, which supports a simple Fzd/LRP6 heterodimerization mechanism of canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling.

    Non-canonical Wnt signaling regulates junctional mechanocoupling during angiogenic collective cell migration

    Joana R Carvalho et al.
    Analysis of axial polarity distributions shows that Wnt5a regulates collective cell migration in vivo by stabilizing vinculin at adherens junctions and fine-tuning mechanocoupling between neighbouring cells.

    Non-canonical Wnt signalling modulates the endothelial shear stress flow sensor in vascular remodelling

    Claudio A Franco et al.
    A threshold level of blood flow initiates developmental blood vessel regression; this threshold can be regulated by non-canonical Wnt ligands.

    miR-142 regulates the tumorigenicity of human breast cancer stem cells through the canonical WNT signaling pathway

    Taichi Isobe et al.
    Insights into the roles and mechanisms of two of the miRNAs upregulated in human breast cancer stem cells in at least some breast cancers are presented.

    Light-activated Frizzled7 reveals a permissive role of non-canonical wnt signaling in mesendoderm cell migration

    Daniel Čapek et al.
    Uniform activation of Frizzled7 signaling is required and sufficient for directional mesendoderm cell migration during zebrafish gastrulation.

    Dlg1 activates beta-catenin signaling to regulate retinal angiogenesis and the blood-retina and blood-brain barriers

    Chris Cho et al.
    Discs large homologue 1 (Dlg1) activates beta-catenin (i.e., canonical Wnt) signaling in CNS endothelial cells to regulate retinal angiogenesis and the development and maintenance of the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers.

    Conformational change of Dishevelled plays a key regulatory role in the Wnt signaling pathways

    Ho-Jin Lee et al.
    The ligand-binding pocket of the Dishevelled PDZ domain can be occupied by Dishevelled's own highly conserved C-terminus, inducing a closed conformation that is ‘opened’ when Wnt signaling stimulates interaction between Frizzled and Dishevelled.

    Signaling pathways as linear transmitters

    Harry Nunns, Lea Goentoro
    Mathematical and experimental analyses suggest that despite their complex architectures, multiple metazoan signaling pathways act in physiological contexts as linear signal transmitters.

    Kinesin superfamily protein Kif26b links Wnt5a-Ror signaling to the control of cell and tissue behaviors in vertebrates

    Michael W Susman et al.
    Kif26b, a new component of the evolutionarily conserved Wnt5a-Ror signaling pathway, is controlled by regulated proteolysis and plays crucial roles in mediating vertebrate embryonic tissue morphogenesis.

    SOXF factors regulate murine satellite cell self-renewal and function through inhibition of β-catenin activity

    Sonia Alonso-Martin et al.
    A set of ex vivo and in vivo experiments, including genetic ablation and regeneration studies, identify a key regulatory function of SOXF factors in muscle stem cells in mice.
