Meeting Agenda/Notes

Wnt signaling is an evolutionarily conserved pathway important for organogenesis, stem cell maintenance, and dorsoventral axis patterning. Regulation of the Wnt signaling pathway depends on phosphorylation of several of its core components by specific kinases. Using a Xenopus laevis embryo developmental screen, the Lee lab has identified DYRK2 as a novel kinase that enhances Wnt signaling activation.
