Planar tissue polarity is a fundamental feature of many epithelia. Large-scale cell polarity patterns govern the orientation of external structures such as hairs and cilia. Tissue polarity patterns arise from the collective organization of cells, which are polarized individually. Such cell and tissue polarities are reflected in anisotropic distributions of proteins of the planar cell polarity (PCP) pathway. Here we give an overview on recent progress in understanding how large-scale patterns of… CONTINUE READING
