Intracellular trafficking and signaling in development

Tissue patterning during development relies on cell communication by secreted proteins and receptors that engage in complex signaling crosstalk to induce distinct cell behaviors in a context-dependent fashion. Here I summarize recent insights into basic mechanisms that control the distribution and activities of transforming growth factor beta, Wnt, Hedgehog, and Notch proteins, by regulating trafficking decisions during secretion and endocytosis.
