Abstract

Collins et al. describe the role of centriole number and microtubules during the developmental process of radial intercalation in the skin of Xenopus embryos. Increasing the number of centrioles and/or microtubules within an intercalating cell drives early apical insertion, whereas decreasing centrioles and microtubules delays insertion.
