Host: Boris Adryan

Tight control of intercellular signaling by regulatory feedback mechanisms is key for proper growth and patterning of tissues and organs. I will present our recent efforts towards identifying feedback regulators in Drosophila BMP morphogen signaling and analyzing their impact in the establishment and maintenance of graded signaling. I will then focus on a prominent regulatory feedback loop of the pathway and present mechanisms by which tissue-specific cues might rewire regulatory feedback networks to impact on the shape of morphogen gradients and, ultimately, on the shape and function of organs.
