Vangl2 coordinates cell rearrangements during gut elongation


author keywords: Vangl2; endoderm; gut; Xenopus; morphogenesis; elongation
MeSH headings : Animals; Body Patterning; Cell Adhesion; Cell Movement; Cell Polarity; Endoderm / cytology; Intestines / anatomy & histology; Intestines / growth & development; Membrane Proteins / metabolism; Membrane Proteins / physiology; Morphogenesis; Xenopus Proteins / metabolism; Xenopus Proteins / physiology; Xenopus laevis / growth & development
TL;DR: The embryonic gut tube undergoes extensive lengthening to generate the surface area required for nutrient absorption across the digestive epithelium in Xenopus, a process that concomitantly opens the gut lumen and facilitates epithelial morphogenesis. (via Semantic Scholar)
