    Developmentally regulated H2Av buffering via dynamic sequestration to lipid droplets in Drosophila embryos

    Matthew Richard Johnson et al.
    In early Drosophila embryos, histone H2Av continuously exchanges between cytoplasmic lipid droplets, a process that modulates H2Av import into nuclei and constitutes a novel post-translational strategy to regulate nuclear H2Av levels.

    Convergence of topological domain boundaries, insulators, and polytene interbands revealed by high-resolution mapping of chromatin contacts in the early Drosophila melanogaster embryo

    Michael R Stadler et al.
    Fruit fly chromosomes are divided into discrete structural domains by regions of decompacted chromatin, suggesting a novel model for the formation of a known class of genetic elements.

    GAF is essential for zygotic genome activation and chromatin accessibility in the early Drosophila embryo

    Marissa M Gaskill et al.
    Following fertilization, the pioneering transcription factors GAGA factor (GAF) and Zelda are independently required to reprogram the zygotic genome of Drosophila and activate the first wave of gene expression.

    mRNA poly(A)-tail changes specified by deadenylation broadly reshape translation in Drosophila oocytes and early embryos

    Stephen W Eichhorn et al.
    Profiling of mRNA poly(A)-tail lengths and translational efficiencies provides new insights into posttranscriptional gene regulation in early Drosophila development.

    Enhancer additivity and non-additivity are determined by enhancer strength in the Drosophila embryo

    Jacques P Bothma et al.
    Quantitative live imaging assays reveal that multiple enhancers often fail to work in an additive fashion in the patterning of the Drosophila embryo, and sometimes even interfere with one another.

    Establishment of regions of genomic activity during the Drosophila maternal to zygotic transition

    Xiao-Yong Li et al.
    Drosophila melanogaster embryos undergo a dramatic genomic transformation in the hour preceding gastrulation, as thousands of promoters and regulatory regions become biochemically distinct before they become active.

    Importance of miRNA stability and alternative primary miRNA isoforms in gene regulation during Drosophila development

    Li Zhou et al.
    Selective degradation of mature miRNAs shapes temporal miRNA expression patterns and is important for proper regulation of target genes to support normal development of Drosophila embryos.

    ME31B globally represses maternal mRNAs by two distinct mechanisms during the Drosophila maternal-to-zygotic transition

    Miranda Wang et al.
    ME31B is a general repressor of gene expression in the Drosophila early embryo, repressing translation before the maternal-to-zygotic transition and stimulating mRNA decay after activation of the zygotic genome.

    Cellular resolution models for even skipped regulation in the entire Drosophila embryo

    Garth R Ilsley et al.
    A statistical model is able to predict patterns of gene expression output in Drosophila embryos using only the cellular concentrations of transcription factors as input.

    Bicoid gradient formation and function in the Drosophila pre-syncytial blastoderm

    Zehra Ali-Murthy, Thomas B Kornberg
    The concentration gradient of Bicoid protein positions gene expression domains along the anterior/posterior axis of the Drosophila embryo during the cleavage, pre-syncytial blastoderm stages.
