Study uncovers tissue shaping mechanism:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A Canadian team has discovered a key mechanism in tissue formation that could have implications for tissue engineering, as well as for diseases such as spina bifida and cancer. Researchers from the University of Toronto have found that the mechanism that controls cell differentiation is the same one that controls tissue elongation. The finding, published in Nature (July 15), provides insight into the intricacies of morphogenesis, a crucial step in embryonic development through which cells and tissues form into different shapes.
