Cilia--where two Wnts collide

Zebrafish. 2009 Mar;6(1):15-9. doi: 10.1089/zeb.2008.0560.


From the onset of zebrafish development both canonical and noncanonical Wnt signaling play major roles in a diverse array of developmental processes such as patterning, gastrulation, and neuralation making both pathways unarguably prime requests for normal development to occur. In this review, we will focus on their association with cilia and, in particular, how they regulate ciliogenesis and consequently how cilia may regulate them.
