Cell shapes and contacts are dynamically regulated during organogenesis to enable contacts with relevant neighboring cells at appropriate times. During Drosophila larval eye development, an apical contact is established between one pair of non-neuronal cones cells, precluding contact between the opposing pair. Concurrent with changes in cell shape, these… CONTINUE READING
