    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.

    Synapse maintenance is impacted by ATAT-2 tubulin acetyltransferase activity and the RPM-1 signaling hub

    Melissa A Borgen et al.
    Genetic, developmental and pharmacological analysis in Caenorhabditis elegans demonstrate that ATAT-2 tubulin acetyltransferase activity regulates synapse maintenance by acting within the RPM-1 signaling network, but independent of the DLK-1 MAP3K.
