Zebrafish models of non‐canonical Wnt/planar cell polarity signalling: fishing for valuable insight into vertebrate polarized cell behavior
Published Online: Mar 17 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wdev.267
Application of powerful genetics, embryonic cell‐transplantation, and live‐imaging capabilities afforded by the zebrafish model system has transformed our understanding of planar cell polarity (PCP) into a fundamental cellular property that orchestrates a diverse suite of polarized cell behaviors required for vertebrate embryonic development and adult homeostasis. Figure illustrates mediolateral intercalation of differentially‐labeled axial mesoderm cells within the zebrafish notochord.

Rare syndromes of the head and face: mandibulofacial and acrofacial dysostoses
Published Online: Feb 10 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wdev.263
Craniofacial anomalies account for approximately one‐third of all congenital birth defects. Here, we discuss the pathogenesis of a specific array of craniofacial anomalies, termed facial dysostoses, which affect development of the maxilla, mandible, and zygomatic arch.
