Orchestrating Wnt signalling for metabolic liver zonation

Item Type:Editorial
Title:Orchestrating Wnt signalling for metabolic liver zonation
Creators Name:Birchmeier, W.
Abstract:Wnt/{beta}-catenin signalling is an important regulator of liver development, zonation and regeneration. The cell surface complex RSPO-LGR4/5-ZNF3/RNF43 is now shown to direct Wnt/{beta}-catenin signalling in orchestrating the division of the liver into functionally distinct metabolic zones, providing insights into the mechanisms that influence organ development and regeneration.
