Morphogen gradients, in theory.

Abstract:
The idea that morphogen gradients are established by a process of repeated cycles of exocytosis and endocytosis-so-called planar transcytosis-has been gaining acceptance. This is now challenged by a theoretical approach that experimental biologists should not dismiss; diffusive mechanisms of gradient formation may be correct after all.
