    Axon-like protrusions promote small cell lung cancer migration and metastasis

    Dian Yang et al.
    In small cell lung cancer, the transition from a neuroendocrine state to a more neuronal state endows these cancer cells with increased migration and metastatic potential.

    Developmentally regulated Tcf7l2 splice variants mediate transcriptional repressor functions during eye formation

    Rodrigo M Young et al.
    The inclusion of a new alternatively spliced exon in Tcf7l2 can switch its function to repress transcription of Wnt target genes.

    Targeting the vascular-specific phosphatase PTPRB protects against retinal ganglion cell loss in a pre-clinical model of glaucoma

    Benjamin R Thomson et al.
    Genetic deletion of one Ptprb allele leads to increased phosphorylation of the TEK receptor, increasing Schlemm's canal area and protecting retinal ganglion cells in a mouse model of glaucoma.

    N-cadherin-regulated FGFR ubiquitination and degradation control mammalian neocortical projection neuron migration

    Elif Kon et al.
    FGFRs regulate multipolar cortical neuron orientation and the morphological change into bipolar cells in vivo under the control of N-Cadherin and the extracellular matrix protein Reelin.

    BMP7 functions predominantly as a heterodimer with BMP2 or BMP4 during mammalian embryogenesis

    Hyung-Seok Kim et al.
    Endogenous BMP2/7 and BMP4/7 heterodimers form in vivo, and are the predominant functional ligand in many, if not all, tissues of developing mouse embryos.

    Hemozoin produced by mammals confers heme tolerance

    Rini H Pek et al.
    Heme accumulation is toxic, but deficiency of the heme transporter HRG1/SLC48A1 causes heme sequestration and crystallization into hemozoin within enlarged lysosomes of macrophages, thereby conferring heme tolerance to mammals.

    An RNAi screen unravels the complexities of Rho GTPase networks in skin morphogenesis

    Melanie Laurin et al.
    An unprecedented large-scale screen in mice for morphogenetic regulators of tissue development provides major new insights into the roles of Rho GTPases in diverse array of skin developmental processes.

    Two bifunctional inositol pyrophosphate kinases/phosphatases control plant phosphate homeostasis

    Jinsheng Zhu et al.
    Genetic and biochemical analysis of two enzymes reveals that inositol pyrophosphate signaling molecules allow plants to sense and regulate cellular phosphate levels, and to take up more phosphate when needed.

    Altered gating of Kv1.4 in the nucleus accumbens suppresses motivation for reward

    Bernadette O'Donovan et al.
    Low effort-based motivation to pursue naturally rewarding stimuli can be increased pharmacologically, by targeting inactivation of a single voltage-gated potassium channel within the mesolimbic dopamine reward system.
