Developmental ERK Signaling Goes Digital
Reporting in Developmental Cell, de la Cova et al. (2017) present a biosensor to measure ERK activity dynamics in C. elegans larvae. They find that fate decision signaling involves frequency-modulated, digital ERK activity pulses. These findings may explain how graded morphogen signals are converted into precise and robust cell fate patterns.
Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
