The tissue polarity signaling pathway polarizes epithelia, allowing processes such as: mammalian hair patterning, orientation of stereocilia in the vertebrate ear, and Drosophila eye development to occur. The cellular outputs of these polarization events vary widely from the placement and orientation of an actin hair to directed cell movements. In the Drosophila eye the tissue polarity pathway regulates several cellular outputs, including a specialized type of cell movement; ommatidial rotation.Each aquot;stick diagramaquot; corresponds to the ommatidial form that lies directly above or below the diagram. In the diagrams, the center ... BUdR-labeled pool of cells. Green- colored gradient represents probability of a cell being labeled with BUdR.
