EGF receptor signalling protects smooth-cuticle cells from apoptosis during Drosophila ventral epidermis development.

Abstract

Patterning of the Drosophila ventral epidermis is a tractable model for understanding the role of signalling pathways in development. Interplay between Wingless and EGFR signalling determines the segmentally repeated pattern of alternating denticle belts and smooth cuticle: spitz group genes, which encode factors that stimulate EGFR signalling, induce the… (More)
