    Stem cell-derived cranial and spinal motor neurons reveal proteostatic differences between ALS resistant and sensitive motor neurons

    Disi An et al.
    Stem cell-derived motor neurons with differential ALS vulnerability identified proteasome activity as a possible mechanism that explains their differential sensitivity.

    Maintenance of homeostatic plasticity at the Drosophila neuromuscular synapse requires continuous IP3-directed signaling

    Thomas D James et al.
    Synapses employ distinct acute and chronic signaling processes in order to maintain physiologically appropriate levels of function.

    Temporally specific engagement of distinct neuronal circuits regulating olfactory habituation in Drosophila

    Ourania Semelidou et al.
    Habituation to brief olfactory stimulation is biphasic and mediated by distinct neuronal circuits where an initial latency phase is rapidly followed by stimulus devaluation signifying behavioral habituation in Drosophila.

    Cell-intrinsic and -extrinsic mechanisms promote cell-type-specific cytokinetic diversity

    Tim Davies et al.
    Functional molecular analysis of cytokinesis in Caenorhabditis elegans four-cell embryos reveals cell-type-specific variation in the fundamental dependence on a robust f-actin cytoskeleton for successful cell division, mediated by both cell-intrinsic and -extrinsic pathways.

    A repressor-decay timer for robust temporal patterning in embryonic Drosophila neuroblast lineages

    Inna Averbukh et al.
    The demand for robust performance distinguishes the mechanism which progresses the biological timer acting within neural progenitors to determine neuronal fates in the Drosophila embryo.

    Regulation of posterior body and epidermal morphogenesis in zebrafish by localized Yap1 and Wwtr1

    David Kimelman et al.
    Analysis of a double mutant in the Hippo pathway transcription factors Yap1 and Wwtr1 reveals novel roles for these factors in posterior body formation and epidermal morphogenesis in the vertebrate embryo.

    aPKC-mediated displacement and actomyosin-mediated retention polarize Miranda in Drosophila neuroblasts

    Matthew Robert Hannaford et al.
    The actomyosin network and phospho-regulation combine to polarize fate determinants at the Drosophila neuroblast cell cortex.

    The CNS connectome of a tadpole larva of Ciona intestinalis (L.) highlights sidedness in the brain of a chordate sibling

    Kerrianne Ryan et al.
    Serial-section EM analysis uncovers the CNS connectome of a Ciona larva, the second of any entire nervous system, and exposes left-right asymmetries in its synaptic circuits.

    Spontaneous mutations and the origin and maintenance of quantitative genetic variation

    Wen Huang et al.
    Whole genome DNA sequence analysis, genome wide gene expression and complex organismal phenotypes in Drosophila mutation accumulation lines provide a robust estimate of the spontaneous mutation rate and mutational effects.

    Local mechanical forces promote polarized junctional assembly and axis elongation in Drosophila

    Jessica C Yu, Rodrigo Fernandez-Gonzalez
    Polarized assembly of cell-cell junctions drives Drosophila axis elongation.
