    • Abstract


      Signaling pathways orchestrate diverse cellular outcomes in the same tissue, spatially and temporally. Theseinteractions, which are played out in micro-environments within cells and involve a relatively small number ofcore pathways, are the key to the development and function of multi-cellular organisms. How these outcomesare regulated has prompted interest in intracellular mechanisms that build diversity in signaling outcomes. Thisreview specifically addresses spatial positioning of molecules as a means of enabling interactions and noveloutcomes of signaling cascades. Using the Notch and Ras pathways as exemplars, we describe mechanismsthat contribute to diverse signaling outcomes.
