Because Notch signaling regulates a vast array of crucial developmental processes, mutations in genes encoding Notch receptors or ligands lead to a variety of congenital disorders in humans. In a Review article, Jan Mašek and Emma R. Andersson from the Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, discuss the developmental processes underlying Notch-related congenital disorders in humans, drawing on data from model organisms and genome-sequencing projects.
This week, BBC Radio 4 featured an interview with Development Editor Ottoline Leyser in their 'The Life Scientific' feature. Listen to Ottoline explain how plants are intelligent creatures that possess a unique ability to adapt in ways we animals can only dream of, able to alter their entire body plan of roots and shoots, when required, in response to their surroundings.
