Research Description

Our overall goal is to understand the cellular and developmental functions of catenins.
1) Reveal roles of the canonical Wnt pathway (beta-catenin mediated), as well as non-canonical Wnt pathways in animal development.
2) Examine the developmental functions of lesser understood catenins such as p120-catenin, ARVCF-catenin and delta-catenin. Aim (2) occupies most of our laboratory's current efforts.
