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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
