    Large-scale filament formation inhibits the activity of CTP synthetase

    Rachael M Barry et al.
    The accumulation of its product, cytidine triphosphate, encourages the enzyme CTP synthetase (CtpS) to form large-scale polymers and inhibits the enzyme's activity.

    PARIS, an optogenetic method for functionally mapping gap junctions

    Ling Wu et al.
    As the first fully genetically encoded method, PARIS allows cell-specific, long-term, repeated measurements of gap junctional coupling with high spatiotemporal resolution, facilitating its study in both health and disease.

    Gap junctions composed of connexins 41.8 and 39.4 are essential for colour pattern formation in zebrafish

    Uwe Irion et al.
    Melanophores and xanthophores interact via heteromeric gap junctions composed of Connexin 41.8 and Connexin 39.4 to establish the adult pigment pattern in zebrafish.

    Mouse rods signal through gap junctions with cones

    Sabrina Asteriti et al.
    Electrophysiological recordings show that cones in the eyes of mice are able to receive strong input from rods via gap junctions, supporting the view that this route plays an important role in vision.

    Gap junction networks in mushroom bodies participate in visual learning and memory in Drosophila

    Qingqing Liu et al.
    Gap junctions exist in Kenyon cells and Kenyon cell-mushroom body output neuron neural networks, and are also critical in visual learning and memory in Drosophila.

    Loss of neurofibromin Ras-GAP activity enhances the formation of cardiac blood islands in murine embryos

    Amanda D Yzaguirre et al.
    Ras-GAP activity suppresses the hemogenic potential of the embryonic heart.

    Regulation of neuronal axon specification by glia-neuron gap junctions in C. elegans

    Lingfeng Meng et al.
    Genetic study of C. elegans neural development reveals the function of glia-neuron gap junctions in neuronal axon specification, and shows that glial cells regulate neuronal intracellular pathways through gap junctions.

    The speed of GTP hydrolysis determines GTP cap size and controls microtubule stability

    Johanna Roostalu et al.
    GTPase-deficient microtubules are hyper-stable and have longer EB binding regions, demonstrating that EBs bind the GTP cap.

    Quantitative system drift compensates for altered maternal inputs to the gap gene network of the scuttle fly Megaselia abdita

    Karl R Wotton et al.
    Quantitative system-level analysis of a pattern-forming gene regulatory network in a non-model organism shows that dynamic changes in gene expression evolve through quantitative system drift.

    Gap junctions deliver malonyl-CoA from soma to germline to support embryogenesis in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Todd A Starich et al.
    Malonyl-CoA, the rate-limiting substrate for fatty acid synthesis, is produced in the soma and delivered through gap junctions to the germline to promote reproduction and coordinate it with nutritional status.
