Patterning the dorsal-ventral axis of the wasp Nasonia vitripennis
Regulatory networks composed of interacting genes are responsible for pattern formation and cell type specification in a wide variety of developmental contexts. Evolution must act on these regulatory networks in order to ...
Global analysis of dorsoventral patterning in the wasp Nasonia reveals extensive incorporation of novelty in a regulatory network
(BioMed Central, 2016-08-01)
Background: Gene regulatory networks (GRNs) underlie developmental patterning and morphogenetic processes, and changes in the interactions within the underlying GRNs are a major driver of evolutionary processes. In order ...
Dorsoventral polarity of the nasonia embryo primarily relies on a BMP gradient formed without input from toll
(Elsevier Inc., 2014)
In Drosophila, Toll signaling leads to a gradient of nuclear uptake of Dorsal with a peak at the ventral egg pole, and is the source for dorsal-ventral (DV) patterning and polarity of the embryo [1-3]. In contrast, Toll ...
