    The transcriptional response to tumorigenic polarity loss in Drosophila

    Brandon D Bunker et al.
    Loss of polarity in epithelial cells leads to mitogenic cytokine upregulation, via coincident activation by JNK and atypical protein kinase C (aPKC), and Polycomb derepression.

    EGFR signaling promotes self-renewal through the establishment of cell polarity in Drosophila follicle stem cells

    Angela Castanieto et al.
    The specification of cell polarity is essential for self-renewal and the segregation of stem-cell and daughter-cell fates in an epithelial stem cell lineage.

    Tumor suppression in basal keratinocytes via dual non-cell-autonomous functions of a Na,K-ATPase beta subunit

    Julia Hatzold et al.
    A Na,K-ATPase beta subunit can suppress basal cell carcinogenesis either via its osmoregulatory function to avoid hypotonic stress, or by promoting epithelial polarity and adhesiveness of basal keratinocytes from the overlying outer layer.

    AMP-activated protein kinase fortifies epithelial tight junctions during energetic stress via its effector GIV/Girdin

    Nicolas Aznar et al.
    An effector of AMPK is essential for the kinase and its pharmacological activators, including Metformin, to strengthen cell-cell junctions and preserve epithelial cell polarity and barrier functions in the face of energetic stress, as well as to suppress oncogenesis.

    Germ layer-specific regulation of cell polarity and adhesion gives insight into the evolution of mesoderm

    Miguel Salinas-Saavedra et al.
    The expression of 'bilaterian-mesodermal’ genes changes the epithelial properties of the endomesoderm during the embryogenesis of the cnidarian Nematostella vectensis.

    Radially patterned cell behaviours during tube budding from an epithelium

    Yara E Sanchez-Corrales et al.
    Quantitative analysis in quasi-3D reveals apically driven cell behaviours that are closely coordinated across the tissue to allow ordered tube invagination through a focal point.

    Zeb1 controls neuron differentiation and germinal zone exit by a mesenchymal-epithelial-like transition

    Shalini Singh et al.
    Neuronal progenitor cells autonomously inhibit polarization via the transcription factor Zeb1.

    A novel GTP-binding protein–adaptor protein complex responsible for export of Vangl2 from the trans Golgi network

    Yusong Guo et al.
    The ability of epithelial cells to distinguish between domains on opposing cell surfaces within a tissue, a property known as planar cell polarity, relies on proteins and protein complexes directing the traffic of signaling proteins to specific locations on the cell surface membrane.

    Crumbs is an essential regulator of cytoskeletal dynamics and cell-cell adhesion during dorsal closure in Drosophila

    David Flores-Benitez, Elisabeth Knust
    The evolutionarily conserved polarity protein Crumbs links the regulation of cytoskeleton dynamics and cell-cell adhesion with epithelial morphogenesis.
