Drosophila axis elongation
Sérgio Simões, who did his PhD work in António Jacinto's lab, has recently published part of his postdoctoral work in New York in the Journal of Cell Biology. In this paper, the authors show that Rho GTPase and Shroom actin-binding protein have distinct roles in Rho-kinase localization and actomyosin contractility during Drosophila axis elongation.
