aPKC Cycles between Functionally Distinct PAR Protein Assemblies

to Drive Cell Polarity

Rodriguez et al. (2017)

Congrats and thank you all for the hard work

Thanks to Edwin Munro for a really clear review of our work in collaboration with Goehrings’ lab and that of Dickinson et al. (2017) and Wang et al. (2017) , all showing how PAR protein oligomerization can dynamically couple protein diffusion and transport by cortical flow to control kinase activity gradients and polarity in the C. elegans zygote.
