O-GlcNAc signalling during embryonic stem cell differentiation My lab is studying the signalling mechanisms governing the onset of differentiation of pluripotent embryonic stem (ES) cells. Work from this and other labs (e.g. 1, 2) has revealed a critical role for autocrine FGF signalling and consequent sustained phosphorylation of the kinase Erk during the differentiation process. […]

Posted by on January 4th, 2011

Here are the research highlights from the new issue of Development: Wnt/PCP signalling, microtubules and gastrulation During vertebrate gastrulation, convergence and extension (C&E) movements shape the germ layers to form the anterioposteriorly elongated body axis of vertebrate embryos. Non-canonical Wnt/planar cell polarity (Wnt/PCP) signalling regulates C&E by polarising the morphology and behaviour of cells, which […]
