Eyeing up new Wnt pathway players

Cell. 2009 Oct 16;139(2):227-9. doi: 10.1016/j.cell.2009.09.027.


The Wnt signaling pathway controls cell fate decisions during animal development and the self-renewal and repair of adult tissues. In this issue, Ye et al. (2009) and Junge et al. (2009) reveal how an unusual Wnt receptor-ligand complex associated with a spectrum of retinal diseases instructs vascular development in the retina.
