Knowing your neighbors: Cell interactions determine intrasegmental patterning in Drosophila

Journal Article (Review;Journal)

Intercellular signaling and signal transduction are taking their place as primary mechanisms by which the fates of cells are decided during development. Recent work indicates that these mechanisms convey positional information to the epidermal cells in segments of the fruit fly. This patterning process may be highly conserved during evolution, as similar processes, and homologous molecules, are at work in patterning the vertebrate brain. © 1992.
