Fungiform papillae are complex taste organs that develop in a pattern on anterior tongue in rodent embryos. Several intrinsic secreted molecules are important for papilla development and patterning, including sonic hedgehog, bone morphogenetic proteins, Noggin, epidermal growth factor, and WNTs. Recent data about roles of WNTs in regulation of tongue and… CONTINUE READING
