Abstract

In Drosophila, the initial asymmetries that determine the embryonic body axes are generated during oogenesis. A report in this issue of Developmental Cell shows that a developing follicle conveys its anterior-posterior asymmetry to the next younger follicle via a relay mechanism that involves the Notch/Delta and the JAK/STAT signaling pathways.
