Cell motility is regulated by extracellular cues and by intracellular factors that accumulate at sites of contact between cells and the extracellular matrix. One of these factors, focal adhesion kinase (FAK), regulates the cycle of focal adhesion formation and disassembly that is required for cell movement to occur. Recently, Wnt signaling has also been(More)
The ancestral angiosperm flower probably had many separate elements in each floral whorl (sepals, petals, stamens and carpels). Derived character states include "fusion" of elements within a whorl (cohesion) and fusion between whorls (adhesion), as well as epigyny and the emergence of the other floral elements from the apex of the fused carpels.
