|PubMed Abstract||We report the identification of yan, an ETS-domain transcription factor belonging to the Drosophila epidermal growth factor receptor (DER) pathway, as an antagonist of the Wingless signalling pathway. We demonstrate that cells lacking yan function in the Drosophila eye show increased Wingless pathway activity, and inhibition of Wingless signalling in yan(-/-) cells rescues the yan mutant phenotype. Biochemical analysis shows that Yan physically associates with Armadillo, a crucial effector of the Wingless pathway, thereby suggesting a direct regulatory mechanism. We conclude that yan represents a new and unsuspected molecular link between the Wingless and DER pathways.|
