Oogenesis: Setting one sister above the rest

Curr Biol. 2001 Mar 6;11(5):R162-5. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(01)00083-5.

Abstract

Recent studies have revealed that the Par-1 protein, in addition to its established role in anterior-posterior patterning of the Drosophila oocyte, has both microtubule-dependent and microtubule-independent roles very early in oogenesis.
