The duality of beta-catenin function: a requirement in lens morphogenesis and signaling suppression of lens fate in periocular ectoderm

In the current analysis, we have investigated both the cytoskeletal and signaling roles of P-catenin during the early phases of lens development using conditional loss- and gain-of-function strategies. Conditional loss of beta-catenin in the presumptive lens does not perturb the normal sequential appearance of lens fate markers but results in a dramatic failure of the coordinated epithelial cell behavior that constitutes lens morphogenesis.
