Kibra Is a Regulator of the Salvador/Warts/Hippo Signaling Network

Mob Family Proteins: Regulatory Partners in Hippo and Hippo-Like Intracellular Signaling Pathways

This review focuses on one co-activator family, the highly conserved, non-catalytic Mps1-binder-related (Mob) proteins, which are allosteric activators of NDR kinases and adaptors that contribute to assembly of multiprotein NDR Kinase activation complexes.

Mask, a component of the hippo pathway, is required for Drosophila eye morphogenesis.

It is found that Mask is required for the correct distribution and accumulation of adherens junctions and appropriate organization of the cytoskeleton in Drosophila pupal eye morphogenesis and that Hippo signaling also regulates these structures.

Recent Advances of the Hippo/YAP Signaling Pathway in Brain Development and Glioma

The results of recent studies on the physiological effect of the Hippo/YAP signaling pathway in neural stem cells, neural progenitor cells, and glial cells are summarized and the expression of MST1/1, LATS1/2, and the downstream effector YAP, in glioma are focused on.

Mammalian Hippo pathway: from development to cancer and beyond.

The Hippo pathway was discovered as a signal transduction pathway that regulates organ size in Drosophila melanogaster and plays an important role in tissue homoeostasis through the regulation of stem cells, cell differentiation and tissue regeneration.

Non-canonical Roles for the Hippo Pathway

This chapter highlights some of the non-canonical roles for the Hippo pathway and discusses how these functions influence organogenesis and disease.

Crumbs and the apical spectrin cytoskeleton regulate R8 cell fate in the Drosophila eye

Results show that only a subset of Hippo pathway proteins regulate the R8 binary cell fate decision and that aspects of HippO pathway signalling appear to differ between growing organs and post-mitotic R8 cells.

Basolateral Junctions Utilize Warts Signaling to Control Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition and Proliferation Crucial For Migration and Invasion of Drosophila Ovarian Epithelial Cells

The BLJ appears to regulate epithelial polarity and dynamics not only as a localized scaffold, but also by communicating signals to the nucleus, suggesting that Wts may be regulated by distinct junction inputs depending on developmental context.

Quantifying shape, integration, and ecology in avian pedal claws: comparing geometric morphometric and traditional metric approaches

To better address the hypothesized relationship between ecology and claw shape in birds, 580 radiographs were collected allowing visualization of the bony core and keratinous sheath shape spanning 21 avian orders and a new method was used to quantify claw shape using geometric morphometrics and was compared to results using traditional arc measurements.



The Salvador–Warts–Hippo pathway — an emerging tumour-suppressor network

The main findings from Drosophila are reviewed and the implications that these have for tumorigenesis in mammals are reviewed.

Delta signaling from the germ line controls the proliferation and differentiation of the somatic follicle cells during Drosophila oogenesis

One place where Notch signaling plays an essential, but ill-defined, role is in the process of axis formation in Drosophila, which takes place during the development of the oocyte in the ovary.

Delineation of a Fat tumor suppressor pathway

The results functionally link what had been four disparate groups of D. melanogaster tumor suppressors, establish a basic framework for Fat signaling from receptor to transcription factor and implicate Warts as an integrator of multiple growth control signals.
