    Dpp from the anterior stripe of cells is crucial for the growth of the Drosophila wing disc

    Shinya Matsuda, Markus Affolter
    A recent report proposing that the dpp stripe (the main source of the protein dpp) is dispensable for Drosophila wing disc growth missed the critical role on growth due to imprecise spatial removal of dpp.

    Mechanism of environmentally driven conformational changes that modulate H-NS DNA-bridging activity

    Ramon A van der Valk et al.
    The DNA-bridging efficiency of H-NS, a genome organising and transcription regulatory protein, is modulated by changes in environmental conditions of the cell, which drive a structural rearrangement of the protein.

    Global landscape of phenazine biosynthesis and biodegradation reveals species-specific colonization patterns in agricultural soils and crop microbiomes

    Daniel Dar et al.
    Computational approach quantifies the abundance of phenazine-antibiotic producing and biodegrading bacteria in diverse soil and plant-associated habitats.

    Dpp controls growth and patterning in Drosophila wing precursors through distinct modes of action

    Pablo Sanchez Bosch et al.
    Striped expression of Dpp in Drosophila wing precursors leads to graded signalling activity that positions wing veins and, in parallel, promotes growth in a gradient-independent manner by supplying signalling activity above a threshold.

    HIV-1 Vpr induces cell cycle arrest and enhances viral gene expression by depleting CCDC137

    Fengwen Zhang, Paul D Bieniasz
    A key target of the HIV-1 Vpr accessory protein is identified, whose depletion causes increased HIV-1gene expression and cell cycle arrest.

    A comparative transcriptomic analysis of replicating and dormant liver stages of the relapsing malaria parasite Plasmodium cynomolgi

    Annemarie Voorberg-van der Wel et al.
    This comprehensive transcriptomic resource of dormant and replicating malaria liver parasites highlights the dearth of pathways that operate in the hypnozoites and the need to investigate druggability (i.e. selectivity and safety) of core pathways in malaria parasites.

    The extraembryonic serosa is a frontier epithelium providing the insect egg with a full-range innate immune response

    Chris G C Jacobs et al.
    Contrary to the current perception, insect eggs are very capable of defending themselves against pathogens.

    Dpp dependent Hematopoietic stem cells give rise to Hh dependent blood progenitors in larval lymph gland of Drosophila

    Nidhi Sharma Dey et al.
    Identification of Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in the genetically amenable organism Drosophila melanogaster paves the path to address HSC biology, both in normal and pathophysiological conditions.

    Boundary Dpp promotes growth of medial and lateral regions of the Drosophila wing

    Lara Barrio, Marco Milán
    Dpp emanating from the anterior-posterior compartment boundary is continuously required to promote proliferative growth of the whole fly wing appendage.

    Loss of Atoh1 from neurons regulating hypoxic and hypercapnic chemoresponses causes neonatal respiratory failure in mice

    Meike E van der Heijden, Huda Y Zoghbi
    Atoh1 promotes the development of two different neural circuits involved in hypoxic and hypercapnic respiratory responses that together are essential for neonatal respiratory drive and survival.
