    Long-distance communication by specialized cellular projections during pigment pattern development and evolution

    Dae Seok Eom et al.
    Cells of the xanthophore lineage form projections that allow them to communicate with other pigment cells during adult pigment pattern formation in zebrafish, but not in the closely-related pearl danio.

    Coordinated crosstalk between microtubules and actin by a spectraplakin regulates lumen formation and branching

    Delia Ricolo, Sofia J Araujo
    Lumen formation by single epithelial cells depends on FGF-signalling-dependent expression of a spectraplakin, which can be functionally replaced by Tau.

    Tri-methylation of histone H3 lysine 4 facilitates gene expression in ageing cells

    Cristina Cruz et al.
    A widely studied chromatin modification associated with gene promoters is important for proper gene expression across organismal lifetime.

    Fcp1 phosphatase controls Greatwall kinase to promote PP2A-B55 activation and mitotic progression

    Rosa Della Monica et al.
    The phosphatase Fcp1 inactivates Greatwall kinase at the end of mitosis.

    Gamma delta T cells recognize haptens and mount a hapten-specific response

    Xun Zeng et al.
    The T-cell receptors of gamma delta (γδ) T cells can recognize and trigger responses to small molecules and are thereby versatile drivers of immunity.

    A multidisciplinary approach to a unique palaeolithic human ichnological record from Italy (Bàsura Cave)

    Marco Romano et al.
    Traces of crawling locomotion, including children younger than 3 years old, are documented for the first time in the global human ichnological record.

    In vivo reprogramming of pancreatic acinar cells to three islet endocrine subtypes

    Weida Li et al.
    Combinations of transcription factors can convert pancreatic acinar cells into endocrine α-, β- and δ-cells in vivo.

    Somatic hypermutation of T cell receptor α chain contributes to selection in nurse shark thymus

    Jeannine A Ott et al.
    Shark's T cells suggest plasticity in diversification mechanisms used by vertebrate lymphocytes, including somatic hypermutation in the thymus.

    Recalibrating timing behavior via expected covariance between temporal cues

    Benjamin J De Corte et al.
    Rats act as if they expect that the delays associated with temporal cues will covary due to a common causal factor.

    Shank3 modulates sleep and expression of circadian transcription factors

    Ashley M Ingiosi et al.
    Shank3, a high confidence autism gene candidate, may be a key component of the mechanisms underlying sleep problems in autism.
