    Circulating myeloid cells invade the central nervous system to mediate cachexia during pancreatic cancer

    Kevin G Burfeind et al.
    Circulating myeloid cells invade the brain during pancreatic cancer, where they accumulate at a unique central nervous system interface and drive anorexia and muscle catabolism.

    Keratin 14-dependent disulfides regulate epidermal homeostasis and barrier function via 14-3-3σ and YAP1

    Yajuan Guo et al.
    Keratin filaments are revealed as novel regulators of entry into terminal differentiation in the epidermis via an ability to modulate YAP1 function and Hippo signaling.

    Asymmetric clustering of centrosomes defines the early evolution of tetraploid cells

    Nicolaas C Baudoin et al.
    Newly formed tetraploid cells rapidly lose extra centrosomes acquired upon tetraploidization via asymmetric centrosome clustering during cell division and selective advantage of tetraploid daughter cells that inherit a single centrosome.

    Bacterial contribution to genesis of the novel germ line determinant oskar

    Leo Blondel et al.
    Evidence suggests that the oskar gene, a critical germ line determinant in insects, was formed by fusion of bacterial and eukaryotic sequences at least 450 million years ago.

    SKAP2 is required for defense against K. pneumoniae infection and neutrophil respiratory burst

    Giang T Nguyen et al.
    SKAP2 is critical for hematopoietic cell protection against Klebsiella infection in mouse lungs, for full phosphorylation of Src Family Kinases, Syk, and Pyk2, and for Klebsiella-induced reactive oxygen species production.

    Tgfb3 collaborates with PP2A and notch signaling pathways to inhibit retina regeneration

    Mi-Sun Lee et al.
    Tgfb3 inhibits Muller glial cell reprogramming and drives Muller cell quiescence in the injured zebrafish retina, thereby inhibiting retina regeneration.
    1. Neuroscience

    Spontaneous and evoked neurotransmission are partially segregated at inhibitory synapses

    Patricia M Horvath et al.
    GABAergic postsynaptic responses mediated by spontaneous and evoked neurotransmitter release are partially segregated, suggesting they may serve distinct roles in neuronal signaling.

    Yap-lin28a axis targets let7-Wnt pathway to restore progenitors for initiating regeneration

    Zhian Ye et al.
    Atoh1+ HC precursors survive post severe injury and activate the Yap-Lin28 pathway to restore progenitor for initiating regeneration.

    Linker histone H1.2 and H1.4 affect the neutrophil lineage determination

    Gabriel Sollberger et al.
    Linker histones affect the lineage determination of granulocyte precursor cells via regulation of the transcription factor GATA-2.

    Nodal and planar cell polarity signaling cooperate to regulate zebrafish convergence and extension gastrulation movements

    Margot LK Williams, Lilianna Solnica-Krezel
    Nodal signaling regulates gastrulation cell behaviors largely in parallel with planar cell polarity signaling and is sufficient for ex vivo extension of embryonic explants.
