Modulation of Drosophila retinal epithelial integrity by the adhesion proteins capricious and tartan

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: The development of the Drosophila eye imaginal disc requires complex epithelial rearrangements. Cells of the morphogenetic furrow are apically constricted and this leads to a physical indentation in the epithelium. Posterior to the furrow, cells start to rearrange into distinct clusters and eventually form a precisely patterned array of ommatidia. These morphogenetic processes include regulated changes of adhesion between cells. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Here, we show that t...
