    Maternal Gdf3 is an obligatory cofactor in Nodal signaling for embryonic axis formation in zebrafish

    Brent W Bisgrove et al.
    Maternal Gdf3 and Nodal are interdependent obligatory cofactors in the fundamental patterning of the vertebrate embryonic axis of zebrafish.

    Gdf3 is required for robust Nodal signaling during germ layer formation and left-right patterning

    Jose L Pelliccia et al.
    Genetic analyses demonstrate that Gdf3/Vg1 is a maternal effect gene required for robust Nodal signaling during different phases of embryogenesis including germ-layer formation, Kupffer's vesicle morphogenesis, and left-right patterning.

    Negative regulation of urokinase receptor activity by a GPI-specific phospholipase C in breast cancer cells

    Michiel van Veen et al.
    GDE3 is a transmembrane GPI-specific phospholipase C that sheds the urokinase receptor (uPAR) from the cell surface resulting in loss of uPAR function in breast cancer cells and reduced tumor growth.

    Patterning and Axis Formation: Heterodimers reign in the embryo

    Benjamin Tajer, Mary C Mullins
    Experiments by three independent groups on zebrafish have clarified the role of two signaling factors, Nodal and Gdf3, during the early stages of development.

    Vg1-Nodal heterodimers are the endogenous inducers of mesendoderm

    Tessa G Montague, Alexander F Schier
    Nodal is assumed to be the sole inducer of mesendoderm, but the related signal Vg1 is as essential as Nodal in this process.

    Regulation of zebrafish melanocyte development by ligand-dependent BMP signaling

    Alec K Gramann et al.
    The oncogenic role ligand-dependent BMP signaling plays in suppressing differentiation in melanoma is a reiteration of its physiological roles during melanocyte development.

    The origins and relatedness structure of mixed infections vary with local prevalence of P. falciparum malaria

    Sha Joe Zhu et al.
    Variation in the rate of mixed infections by malaria parasites and the relatedness structure among infecting strains reveals diversity in local epidemiological processes.

    Maternally provided LSD1/KDM1A enables the maternal-to-zygotic transition and prevents defects that manifest postnatally

    Jadiel A Wasson et al.
    Epigenetic reprogramming by LSD1/KDM1A acts at fertilization in mice to enable embryogenesis and prevent behavioural abnormalities.

    BMPs direct sensory interneuron identity in the developing spinal cord using signal-specific not morphogenic activities

    Madeline G Andrews et al.
    Members of the BMP family of growth factors act as a reiterative code of distinct activities to direct the identities of different classes of sensory neurons in the spinal cord.

    Epigenetic profiling of growth plate chondrocytes sheds insight into regulatory genetic variation influencing height

    Michael Guo et al.
    Epigenetic profiling of femoral growth plate chondrocytes helps whittle-down GWAS height variants to fewer putative functional variants.
