Recent studies have defined a new Drosophila Jun amino-terminal kinase (DJNK) pathway. The first role that has been uncovered for this pathway is the control of cell differentiation and morphogenesis during the process of dorsal closure. This phosphorylation cascade has been conserved during evolution and several reports suggest that it becomes activated in response to the action of small GTPases. DJNK signalling impinges on transcription factors as DJun and Anterior open and eventually… CONTINUE READING
