Cross regulation of intercellular gap junction communication and paracrine signaling pathways during organogenesis in Drosophila.

Abstract

The spatial and temporal coordination of patterning and morphogenesis is often achieved by paracrine morphogen signals or by the direct coupling of cells via gap junctions. How paracrine signals and gap junction communication cooperate to control the coordinated behavior of cells and tissues is mostly unknown. We found that hedgehog signaling is required… (More)
