Epithelia are polarized layers of adherent cells that are the building blocks for organ and appendage structures throughout animals. To preserve tissue architecture and barrier function during both homeostasis and rapid growth, individual epithelial cells divide in a highly constrained manner. Building on decades of research focused on single cells, recent(More)
The association of large numbers of cells in tightly organized epithelial layers is a unique and defining feature of Metazoa. Although classical studies of development once labeled distinct embryonic regions as territories, fields, layers, placodes, and primordia, we now know many of these structures to be primarily constructed from epithelial sheets.(More)
