Confronting morphogen gradients: how important are they for growth?


Hamaratoglu, F; Basler, K; Affolter, M (2009). Confronting morphogen gradients: how important are they for growth? Science Signaling, 2(94):pe67.

Abstract

Morphogens are crucial for regulating the patterning and the growth of organs. In the developing fly wing, graded distributions of the morphogens Decapentaplegic and Wingless are essential for tissue patterning, but when it comes to growth, evidence suggests that it may not be so.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
