University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis
Sunday September 23, 2012 15:45 - 16:00 @ Auditorium    Identification of a previously uncharacterized transmembrane protein required for JNK-dependent neoplastic growth Abstract: Drosophila has emerged as a powerful model system for studying tumor growth. Drosophila epithelial structures (discs) bearing rasV12/scrib-/- mutant clones model several aspects of cancer in that mutant cells overgrow to generate tumor-like structures... Read More →

University of Geneva
Sunday September 23, 2012 14:30 - 15:00 @ Auditorium    Asymmetric cell division and germline development Abstract: Establishment and maintenance of cell polarity are essential for many biological processes. In the C. elegans embryo the conserved PAR proteins regulate the cytoplasmic asymmetric localization of CCCH tandem zinc finger proteins (CCCH-proteins), which specify somatic and germ cell fates. MEX-5 and MEX-6, two... Read More →

Markus Grebe

Umeå University
Sunday September 23, 2012 15:15 - 15:45 @ Auditorium    Modulation of cytoskeletal organization during planar polarity establishment in Arabidopsis Abstract: The coordination of cell polarity within the plane of a single tissue layer (planar polarity) is crucial to the development of multicellular organisms as diverse as animals and plants. We have established the root epidermis of Arabidopsis thaliana as a model system for... Read More →

Sunday September 23, 2012 16:00 - 16:30 @ Auditorium    Spatial control of cell mechanics during tissue morphogenesis Abstract: Tissues exhibit a remarkable dual property of robustness and plasticity. This relies on unique mechanical properties of the cell cortex and on adhesive interactions between cells. Our group seeks to understand the fundamental molecular mechanisms responsible for this property. This is essential to... Read More →

Sunday September 23, 2012 15:00 - 15:15 @ Auditorium    Interkinetic Nuclear Migration (IKNM) is regulated by Cdk1 and Rho kinase pathways in Zebrafish neuroepithelia Abstract: Pseudostratified epithelia are commonly found from Nematostella to humans, characterized by nuclei positioned along the entire length of the elongated cells. These nuclei migrate apically prior to division, and this so-called IKNM is crucial for tissue... Read More →
