The origin of epithelial cell polarity during development is a fundamental problem in cell biology. Central to this process is the establishment of asymmetric membrane domains that will ultimately form the apical and basolateral surfaces. The spectrin-based membrane skeleton has long been thought to participate in the generation of this asymmetry. Drosophila melanogaster contains two known (beta)-spectrin isoforms: a conventional (beta)-spectrin chain, and the novel isoform (beta)(Heavy… CONTINUE READING
