    SATB2 induction of a neural crest mesenchyme-like program drives melanoma invasion and drug resistance

    Maurizio Fazio et al.
    A genetic discovery screen for epigenetic factors accelerating melanoma development in vivo identifies SATB2 as a driver of tumor invasion and resistance to FDA-approved BRAF-targeted inhibitor Vemurafenib.

    Postnatal mechanical loading drives adaptation of tissues primarily through modulation of the non-collagenous matrix

    Danae E Zamboulis et al.
    Phase-specific mechanical and proteomic analyses reveal how tendon responds to its mechanical environment during postnatal development to meet functional requirements.

    Assigning mitochondrial localization of dual localized proteins using a yeast Bi-Genomic Mitochondrial-Split-GFP

    Gaétan Bader et al.
    The Bi-Genomic Mitochondrial-Split-GFP, where both fragments of the Split-GFP are expressed by separated translation machineries, shuts off cytosolic fluorescence of dual-localized proteins, allowing visualization of their mitochondrial echoforms.

    A conserved Mcm4 motif is required for Mcm2-7 double-hexamer formation and origin DNA unwinding

    Kanokwan Champasa et al.
    Analysis of an essential motif in Mcm4 provides insights into replicative helicase double-hexamer formation and the first step requiring this intermediate during replication initiation.

    An integrin/MFG-E8 shuttle loads HIV-1 viral-like particles onto follicular dendritic cells in mouse lymph node

    Chung Park, John H Kehrl
    Intravital imaging with HIV-1 viral-like particle in mouse model reveals a mechanism for HIV-1 uptake by subcapsular sinus macrophages that facilitates HIV-1 spreading tofollicular dendritic and B cells.

    Gene activation by a CRISPR-assisted trans enhancer

    Xinhui Xu et al.
    Both exogenous and endogenous genes can be highly activated in cells by a new dCas9-based activator, CRISPR-assisted trans enhancer, that can be used to activate genes for biomedical applications.

    Species-specific maturation profiles of human, chimpanzee and bonobo neural cells

    Maria C Marchetto et al.
    Using iPSCs as a model to study neurodevelopmental differences between human and nonhuman primates lays the groundwork for understanding aspects of human brain evolution and neurological disease susceptibility.

    Firefly genomes illuminate parallel origins of bioluminescence in beetles

    Timothy R Fallon et al.
    The first genomic view of beetle luciferase evolution indicates evolutionary independence of luciferase between fireflies and click-beetles, and provide valuable datasets which will accelerate the discovery of new biotechnological tools.

    In vivo dynamics of skeletal muscle Dystrophin in zebrafish embryos revealed by improved FRAP analysis

    Fernanda Bajanca et al.
    A multidisciplinary approach was used to translate the mathematical analysis of Dystrophin movements inside muscle cells into the biology of how Dystrophin interacts with the cell membrane.

    Embryonic attenuated Wnt/β-catenin signaling defines niche location and long-term stem cell fate in hair follicle

    Zijian Xu et al.
    Long-term hair follicle stem cells arise by embryonic progenitor cells occupying a niche location that is defined by attenuated Wnt/β-catenin signal.
