    Selective egg cell polyspermy bypasses the triploid block

    Yanbo Mao et al.
    A ménàge à trois introduces extra DNA only to plant embryos, thus skipping endosperm-induced seed hybridization barriers.

    Adaptive thermal plasticity enhances sperm and egg performance in a model insect

    Ramakrishnan Vasudeva et al.
    Sperm and egg development are temperature sensitive, enabling males and females to significantly improve their reproductive success by matching gamete function to varying thermal environments for fertilisation and offspring development.

    Generation of endogenous pH-sensitive EGF receptor and its application in high-throughput screening for proteins involved in clathrin-mediated endocytosis

    Mads Breum Larsen et al.
    CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing was used to generate a novel endogenous pH-sensitive EGF receptor chimera with the unique utility to study receptor endocytosis in a single-cell and high-throughput experimental formats.

    The ion channel ppk301 controls freshwater egg-laying in the mosquito Aedes aegypti

    Benjamin J Matthews et al.
    The ion channel ppk301 is required for the evaluation of water purity during egg-laying, which promotes offspring survival in the arboviral vector mosquito Aedes aegypti.

    EGF receptor signaling, phosphorylation, ubiquitylation and endocytosis in tumors in vivo

    Itziar Pinilla-Macua et al.
    A small pool of active epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptors, which are capable of ubiquitylation and efficient endocytosis in vivo, is sufficient to support EGF-receptor-dependent tumor growth by signaling primarily through the Ras-MAPK pathway.

    Activity of the C. elegans egg-laying behavior circuit is controlled by competing activation and feedback inhibition

    Kevin M Collins et al.
    The neural circuit that regulates egg-laying behavior in nematode worms is activated by egg production, coupled to the circuit that generates movement, and inhibited by sensory feedback from egg release.

    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.

    Nitric oxide radicals are emitted by wasp eggs to kill mold fungi

    Erhard Strohm et al.
    To protect their food and themselves against detrimental mould fungi, the eggs of a wasp species synthesize and emit remarkable amounts of gaseous nitrogen oxides that are highly effective antimicrobials.

    Co-movement of astral microtubules, organelles and F-actin by dynein and actomyosin forces in frog egg cytoplasm

    James F Pelletier et al.
    Live imaging of multiple cytoplasmic networks in frog egg extracts calls for new models for how egg cytoplasm is physically organized during cleavage divisions.

    Autocatalytic microtubule nucleation determines the size and mass of Xenopus laevis egg extract spindles

    Franziska Decker et al.
    Quantitative microscopy and theory show that the size of Xenopus laevis egg extract spindles is controlled by a spatially-regulated autocatalytic growth mechanism driven by microtubule-stimulated microtubule nucleation.
