Cilia and flagella have essential functions in a wide range of organisms. Cilia assembly is dynamic during development and different types of cilia are found in multicellular organisms. How this dynamic and specific assembly is regulated remains an important question in cilia biology. In metazoans, the regulation of the overall expression level of key(More)
In vertebrates, the digestive tract develops from a uniform structure where reciprocal epithelial-mesenchymal interactions pattern this complex organ into regions with specific morphologies and functions. Concomitant with these early patterning events, the primitive GI tract is colonized by the vagal enteric neural crest cells (vENCCs), a population of(More)
Regulation of the Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) signaling pathway is essential for the normal development of vertebrate gastrointestinal (GI) tract, but also for the differentiation of the digestive mesenchymal layer into smooth muscles and submucosal layer. Different studies demonstrated that Bapx1 (for bagpipe homeobox homolog 1) negatively regulates(More)
In vertebrates, smooth muscle cells (SMCs) can reversibly switch between contractile and proliferative phenotypes. This involves various molecular mechanisms to reactivate developmental signaling pathways and induce cell dedifferentiation. The protein RBPMS2 regulates early development and plasticity of digestive SMCs by inhibiting the bone morphogenetic(More)
In vertebrates, stomach smooth muscle development is a complex process that involves the tight transcriptional or post-transcriptional regulation of different signalling pathways. Here, we identified the RNA-binding protein Epithelial Splicing Regulatory Protein 1 (ESRP1) as an early marker of developing and undifferentiated stomach mesenchyme. Using a(More)

We have developed anti-Evc2 antibodies and show that Evc2 and Evc co-localise at the basal body and also in primary cilia. In transfected cells, basal body and cilia localisation are only observed when Evc and Evc2 constructs are co-transfected but do not occur when either construct is transfected individually indicating that this localisation is(More)
