Cell polarity: overdosing on PCPs.

Several spatial cues combine to influence cell polarity within the plane of the Drosophila wing epithelium, orienting two separable mechanisms of short-range intercellular communication, one utilizing the 'core' polarity proteins, and another utilizing the protocadherins Dachsous and Fat, and the atypical myosin Dachs.
