Cytoplasmic NOTCH and membrane-derived β-catenin link cell fate choice to epithelial-mesenchymal transition during myogenesis

Daniel Sieiro, Anne C Rios, Claire E Hirst, Christophe Marcelle

How cells in the embryo coordinate epithelial plasticity with cell fate decision in a fast changing cellular environment is largely unknown. In chick embryos, skeletal muscle formation is initiated by migrating Delta1-expressing neural crest cells that trigger NOTCH signaling and myogenesis in selected epithelial somite progenitor cells, which rapidly translocate into the nascent muscle to differentiate. Here, we uncovered at the heart of this response a signaling module encompassing NOTCH, GSK-3β, SNAI1 and β-catenin.

INMG houses 14 research teams focusing on the physiology of the neuromuscular system, cellular and molecular neurobiology and nuclear dynamics.

News & Highlights

Julien Courchet receives ERC Starting Grant (ERC StG 2015).

Julien Courchet’s group will investigate how the regulation of glucose metabolism and mitochondria function by two kinases termed LKB1 and NUAK1 underlies neuron development and circuit formation in the cortex of the mouse.
