Asymmetric Localization of Ck2α During Xenopus Oogenesis

The establishment of the dorso-ventral axis is a fundamental process that occurs after fertilization. Dorsal axis specification in frogs starts immediately after fertilization, and depends upon activation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling. The protein kinase CK2α can modulate Wnt/β-catenin signaling and is necessary for dorsal axis specification in Xenopus laevis. Our previous experiments show that CK2α transcripts and protein are animally localized in embryos, overlapping the region where Wnt/β-catenin signaling is activated.
