    Reciprocal and dynamic polarization of planar cell polarity core components and myosin

    Erin Newman-Smith et al.
    Planar cell polarity (PCP) components and myosin show a parallel temporal polarization in the Ciona notochord and the mutual interaction between these proteins is required for proper tissue-wide polarity.

    Plasticity of both planar cell polarity and cell identity during the development of Drosophila

    Pedro Saavedra et al.
    In the Drosophila larval epidermis both the cell identity and polarity of individual cells change as a result of cell rearrangements.

    Nodal and planar cell polarity signaling cooperate to regulate zebrafish convergence and extension gastrulation movements

    Margot LK Williams, Lilianna Solnica-Krezel
    Nodal signaling regulates gastrulation cell behaviors largely in parallel with planar cell polarity signaling and is sufficient for ex vivo extension of embryonic explants.

    Meru couples planar cell polarity with apical-basal polarity during asymmetric cell division

    Jennifer J Banerjee et al.
    Meru is a factor that provides tissue-specific information to the core polarity machinery by linking planar to apical-basal polarity in asymmetrically dividing sensory organ precursors.

    A synthetic planar cell polarity system reveals localized feedback on Fat4-Ds1 complexes

    Olga Loza et al.
    Localized feedback on Fa4-Ds1 boundary complexes underlies polarized distribution of Fat4 and Ds1 and gives rise to planar cell polarity.

    TALPID3 controls centrosome and cell polarity and the human ortholog KIAA0586 is mutated in Joubert syndrome (JBTS23)

    Louise A Stephen et al.
    Mutations in KIAA0586 (TALPID3) cause a severe ciliopathy called Joubert syndrome that affects organ, cell and centrosome polarity.

    Planar cell polarity-mediated induction of neural stem cell expansion during axolotl spinal cord regeneration

    Aida Rodrigo Albors et al.
    During axolotl spinal cord regeneration adult neural stem cells reactivate an embryonic neuroepithelial cell-like gene program that implements planar cell polarity to orient cell divisions, coupling polarized spinal cord growth with stem cell self-renewal.

    Role of competition between polarity sites in establishing a unique front

    Chi-Fang Wu et al.
    In budding yeast, nascent polarity sites engage in a winner-takes-all contest to determine a single front.

    Coordination of planar cell polarity pathways through Spiny-legs

    Abhijit A Ambegaonkar, Kenneth D Irvine
    A direct connection between distinct planar cell polarity systems orients cells, answering long-standing questions regarding the relationship between systems and the orientation of cell polarity.

    Sonic Hedgehog switches on Wnt/planar cell polarity signaling in commissural axon growth cones by reducing levels of Shisa2

    Keisuke Onishi, Yimin Zou
    Sonic Hedgehog signaling may temporally and spatially activate planar cell polarity signaling for cellular and tissue morphogenesis.
