Cell-Cell Signaling in Development, Volume 150 covers new approaches and topics surrounding the diversity of animals, with recognized species now in the millions. Remarkably, the many distinct morphologies in the metazoan biosphere are generated by only a small number of genetically-encoded signaling systems that organize cells into patterned tissues, principally, the Wnt, Hedgehog, Bone morphogenic protein, fibroblast growth factor, Notch/Delta, and planar polarity systems whose roles orchestrating morphogenesis are widespread and evolutionarily conserved. Users will find the latest information on these elegant systems, along with conceptual links to signaling in plants and ideas that are emerging from recent progress.

Key Features

  • Presents the newest information on signaling proteins of animal development
  • Covers the processes that make and distribute signaling proteins
  • Includes coverage of cell-cell interactions that pattern tissues

About the Serial Volume Editor

Thomas Kornberg

Thomas Kornberg is a member of the Cardiovascular Research Institute and Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics faculties at the University of California, San Francisco. His research has spanned DNA enzymology (the discovery of E. coli DNA polymerases 2 and 3), developmental and molecular genetics (cloning and functional characterizations of Drosophila genes including engrailed, cubitus interruptus, and hedgehog), and cell biology (discovery and functional characterization of cytonemes, the specialized filopodia that mediate dispersion and cell-cell exchange of morphogen signaling proteins). Research in his lab currently focuses on the mechanisms and processes that distribute patterning and positional information within cells and across tissues.
