    Phenotypic plasticity as a mechanism of cave colonization and adaptation

    Helena Bilandžija et al.
    Astyanax mexicanus surface-dwelling fish exposed to complete darkness develop many traits resembling cavefish adaptations by phenotypic plasticity in a single generation.

    Developmental evolution of the forebrain in cavefish, from natural variations in neuropeptides to behavior

    Alexandre Alié et al.
    A comparative approach shows that developmental evolution of neuropeptidergic neuronal groups in the hypothalamus of blind cavefish drives adaptive behavioral evolution.

    Maternally regulated gastrulation as a source of variation contributing to cavefish forebrain evolution

    Jorge Torres-Paz et al.
    Phenotypic evolution can originate from variations in very precocious developmental events, starting even before fecundation, during the fabrication of the egg in the mother's gonad.

    Hypocretin underlies the evolution of sleep loss in the Mexican cavefish

    James B Jaggard et al.
    The identification of evolutionarily-derived changes in Hypocretin function within the brains of short-sleeping Mexican cavefish provides a system for investigating the mechanistic basis of sleep differences throughout the animal kingdom.

    Retinal oxygen supply shaped the functional evolution of the vertebrate eye

    Christian Damsgaard et al.
    Multiple respiratory and vascular mechanisms have recurrently evolved across the vertebrates to alleviate the oxygen diffusion limitations inherent to the morphology of the retina.

    Genetic diversity of CHC22 clathrin impacts its function in glucose metabolism

    Matteo Fumagalli et al.
    Natural selection shaped CHC22 clathrin genetic variation in humans with different diets and potentially influenced the human insulin response.

    Repeated losses of PRDM9-directed recombination despite the conservation of PRDM9 across vertebrates

    Zachary Baker et al.
    PRDM9 is widely conserved across vertebrates yet has been lost numerous times, as has its role in directing meiotic recombination.

    Single-cell analysis uncovers that metabolic reprogramming by ErbB2 signaling is essential for cardiomyocyte proliferation in the regenerating heart

    Hessel Honkoop et al.
    Single-cell RNA sequencing reveals Nrg1/ErbB2-induced metabolic reprogramming as a pivotal event for cardiomyocyte proliferation during heart regeneration.

    A high-resolution mRNA expression time course of embryonic development in zebrafish

    Richard J White et al.
    Global gene expression analysis defines the transcriptional events during the development of zebrafish from fertilised egg to fully formed organism.

    The evolutionary origin of bilaterian smooth and striated myocytes

    Thibaut Brunet et al.
    Molecular profiling of annelid myocytes reveals that the last common protostome-deuterostome ancestor already possessed a dual musculature, with visceral smooth muscles ensuring digestion and somatic striated muscles ensuring locomotion.
