    Distinct mesoderm migration phenotypes in extra-embryonic and embryonic regions of the early mouse embryo

    Bechara Saykali et al.
    At gastrulation, mesoderm arises as a migratory germ layer that will participate to both foetal and placental development through region-dependant adaptation of cytoskeleton composition, cell shape and migration mode.

    Pitx2c orchestrates embryonic axis extension via mesendodermal cell migration

    Michelle M Collins et al.
    Expression of Pitx2c at the onset of gastrulation drives convergence and extension movements in the zebrafish embryo by promoting downstream pathways affecting chemokine signaling, integrin-ECM interactions, and planar cell polarity components.

    Disruption of entire Cables2 locus leads to embryonic lethality by diminished Rps21 gene expression and enhanced p53 pathway

    Tra Thi Huong Dinh et al.
    Mouse genetic manipulations reveal that Cables2 is involved in the progress of gastrulation by interacting with Wnt/β-catenin and the p53 pathways in diminished Rps21 expression.

    Maternally regulated gastrulation as a source of variation contributing to cavefish forebrain evolution

    Jorge Torres-Paz et al.
    Phenotypic evolution can originate from variations in very precocious developmental events, starting even before fecundation, during the fabrication of the egg in the mother's gonad.

    Large, long range tensile forces drive convergence during Xenopus blastopore closure and body axis elongation

    David R Shook et al.
    Blastopore closure in Xenopus is driven by two morphogenic mechanisms that have strongly context dependent effects on tissue movement and that generate tensile force across tissues: convergent extension, as expected, and, unexpectedly, convergent thickening.

    The major β-catenin/E-cadherin junctional binding site is a primary molecular mechano-transductor of differentiation in vivo

    Jens-Christian Röper et al.
    The primary molecular mechanosensor involved in a physiological process of mechanically induced cell fate differentiation is revealed here for the first time in vivo, highly sensitive and potentially shared by all metazoan epithelia.

    The transcription factor Rreb1 regulates epithelial architecture, invasiveness, and vasculogenesis in early mouse embryos

    Sophie M Morgani et al.
    Loss of the transcription factor Rreb1 results perturbs epithelial architecture during mouse development resulting in invasive cell behaviors, severe cardiovascular defects, and embryonic lethality.

    Theoretical tool bridging cell polarities with development of robust morphologies

    Silas Boye Nissen et al.
    Biological shapes and morphological transitions can emerge from combining directed interactions between cells with apical-basal and planar cell polarity.

    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.

    Optogenetic investigation of BMP target gene expression diversity

    Katherine W Rogers et al.
    Optogenetic manipulation of BMP signaling indicates that diversity in BMP-dependent gene expression is not well explained by differential responses to BMP, and combinatorial signaling is a major driver of diversity.
