Abstract: This Podcast features conversations with authors of articles related to Hippo signaling that appear in Science and Science Signaling. James Martin discusses his group’s finding that Hippo signaling regulates the size of the mouse heart by antagonizing Wnt signaling through a mechanism that involves cooperation between the transcription factors Yap and β-catenin, as described in a Research Report published in the 22 April 2011 issue of Science. Valeri Vasioukhin and Mark Silvis discuss their findings related to Hippo signaling in tumorigenesis, as reported in the 24 May 2011 issue of Science Signaling. They report that the adhesion protein αE-catenin acts as a tumor suppressor by regulating the localization and activity of the transcriptional coactivator Yap, which is also regulated by Hippo signaling.
