Mouse lines with mutant fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) develop craniosynostosis, with the specific cranial growth deviations occurring prenatally and worsening with time, and these deviations differing depending on the precise mutation present.
Shahragim Tajbakhsh and Philippos Mourikis review the role of Notch signalling in skeletal muscle stem cells and discuss the importance of cellular context in determining the outcome of this activity.

News from the web
BMC Developmental Biology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on the development, growth, differentiation and regeneration of multicellular organisms, including molecular, cellular, tissue, organ and whole organism research.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
