How cells integrate the input of multiple polarizing signals during division is poorly understood. We demonstrate that two distinct Caenorhabditis elegans Wnt pathways contribute to the polarization of the ABar blastomere by differentially regulating its duplicated centrosomes. Contact with the C blastomere orients the ABar spindle through a(More)
C. elegans has numerous putative cell adhesion receptors, many of which have vertebrate homologues. The simple body plan of C. elegans, its optical transparency and genetic tractability make it well suited for the study of adhesion receptors and their associated complexes (reviewed by Cox and Hardin in this issue, pp. 1885-1897). We focus here on receptors(More)
