Title: Cellular synapses for Hedgehog signaling
10 June 2015, 12:00
CPR Seminar room Panum Building 6, 2nd floor
Secreted signaling molecules of the TGF-beta, Wnt, and Hedgehog (Hh) families have been shown to play essential roles in cell fate specification during development. In many developmental contexts, they act as morphogens that emanate from localized sources and form extracellular gradients, which differentially regulate cell fates in a concentration-dependent manner. Dr. Isabel Guerrero's group is studying the function of these morphogens during Drosophila development with higher input in the molecular and cellular mechanisms of Hh signaling. Hh is a molecule highly modified by lipids, which confer to Hh a high affinity for cell membranes.
