- Tfap2 and Sox1/2/3 cooperatively specify ectodermal fates in ascidian embryos
Summary: Epidermal fate is autonomously determined by a gene circuit beginning with Sox1/2/3 and Tfap2-r.b in ascidian embryos.
- The coordination of ploidy and cell size differs between cell layers in leaves
Summary: The well-known correlation between ploidy and cell volume in the leaf epidermis is not seen in leaf palisade mesophyll cells, indicating that cell identity influences this correlation.
- Control of patterns of symmetric cell division in the epidermal and cortical tissues of the Arabidopsis root
Summary: Adjacent tissues have different requirements for the precise positioning of the division plane, which is mediated at the intracellular level by the preprophase band that controls the pattern of cell division.
- BMP signalling controls the construction of vertebrate mucociliary epithelia
Summary: The BMP pathway controls both morphognenesis of and cell type specification in mucociliary epithelia: the Xenopus embryonic epidermis and regenerating human airways.
- DEFECTIVE KERNEL 1 promotes and maintains plant epidermal differentiation
Summary: In Arabidopsis, the phytocalpain DEK1 regulates epidermal differentiation by influencing the expression of multiple members of the HD-ZIP IV transcription factor family.
