The highly conserved wnt gene family has roles in developmental processes ranging from axis formation to cell fate determination. The polychaete Platynereis dumerilii has retained 12 of the 13 ancient wnt subfamilies and is a good model system to study the roles of the wnt ligands in spiralian development. While it has been shown that Platynereis uses a global beta-catenin-mediated binary cell fate specification module in development, the early roles of the 12 wnt genes present in Platynereis… CONTINUE READING
