Operational parallels in overall mechanisms of three-dimensional patterning of vertebrate organs are becoming increasingly apparent. Many key mediators, such as FGFs, BMPs, and sonic hedgehog, participate in organization of a number of organs, including the lungs, which exhibit a defined proximodistal (P-D) polarity. Recently, Wnt5a a member of the wingless family of signaling molecules involved in cell proliferation, differentiation, and organogenesis, was shown to underlie the outgrowth and P… CONTINUE READING
