Diversity and convergence in the mechanisms establishing L/R asymmetry in metazoa.

Abstract

Differentiating left and right hand sides during embryogenesis represents a major event in body patterning. Left-Right (L/R) asymmetry in bilateria is essential for handed positioning, morphogenesis and ultimately the function of organs (including the brain), with defective L/R asymmetry leading to severe pathologies in human. How and when symmetry is… (More)
