Asymmetric cell divisions constitute a basic foundation of animal development, providing a mechanism for placing specific cell types at defined positions in a developing organism. In a 4cell stage embryo in Caenorhabditis elegans the EMS cell divides asymmetrically to specify intestinal cells, which requires a polarizing signal from the neighboring P2 cell. Here we describe how the extracellular signal from P2 is transmitted from the membrane to the nucleus during asymmetric EMS cell division… CONTINUE READING
