Funding: BBSRC
Project: Small molecule control of Wnt signal transduction
Summary: In this project, we have two broad goals: First, we are creating new alleles of β-catenin, using an approach called inducible stabilization. Second, we are exploiting reversible chemical control to study the genetic requirements of GSK-3 and β-catenin during neural crest migration. We hope that this project will provide a suite of broadly applicable tools for the study of Wnt signaling, as well as valuable insight into the mechanisms underlying neural crest migration.
