New mechanical boundaries paper from the Sanson lab

3 November 2022

In a new paper, the Sanson lab demonstrates that tartan , a LRR cell surface receptor, is responsible for the formation of mechanical boundaries during axis extension following gastrulation. Differential expression of the receptor at compartmental boundaries promotes the enrichment of the actomyosin cytoskeleton, which in...
