Planar polarity: location, location, location

Curr Biol. 2002 Jul 9;12(13):R449-51. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(02)00942-9.

Abstract

Recent studies have shown that many proteins that regulate planar polarity in the fly eye are organized into discrete membrane sites which may be crucial for coordinating groups of cells.
