Wnt signaling in cell polarity (WP2222)

Caenorhabditis elegans

The Wnt pathway functions in many aspects of vulval development, it is required in the specification of vulval precursor cell competance, regulation of vulval induction, and the establishment of polarity of the P7.p cell, as diagrammed here.
