    Electron transport chain biogenesis activated by a JNK-insulin-Myc relay primes mitochondrial inheritance in Drosophila

    Zong-Heng Wang et al.
    An insulin-Myc feed-forward loop triggered by transient JNK boosts transcription of genes essential for mitochondrial respiration and biogenesis during early oogenesis to support massive mtDNA replication and inheritance in Drosophila.

    The role of APETALA1 in petal number robustness

    Marie Monniaux et al.
    Variable petal number in Cardamine hirsuta is explained by regulatory changes in the MADS-box gene APETALA1 that relaxed its epistasis over mapped QTL in the C. hirsuta genome.

    Loss of foxo rescues stem cell aging in Drosophila germ line

    Filippo Artoni et al.
    Loss of foxo rescues age-related defects in stem cell-mediated regeneration post-injury.

    The follicle epithelium in the Drosophila ovary is maintained by a small number of stem cells

    Jocelyne Fadiga, Todd G Nystul
    Just 2-4 follicle stem cells maintain each follicle epithelium in the Drosophila ovary, and they reside within a single ring at the anterior edge of the tissue.

    Localised dynactin protects growing microtubules to deliver oskar mRNA to the posterior cortex of the Drosophila oocyte

    Ross Nieuwburg et al.
    Dynactin acts as an anti-catastrophe factor that extends microtubule growth; posteriorly elucidating a new essential step in oskar mRNA localisation and providing a novel mechanism by which motor-dependent transport can amplify the polarity of MT networks.

    Jak-Stat pathway induces Drosophila follicle elongation by a gradient of apical contractility

    Hervé Alégot et al.
    A morphogen gradient can trigger tissue elongation via a control of apical cell pulsing and without a planar cell polarity requirement.

    Social communication of predator-induced changes in Drosophila behavior and germ line physiology

    Balint Z Kacsoh et al.
    Reproductive behavior is conferred from experienced to naïve Drosophila as a behavioral social strategy allowing naïve groups to anticipate a threat from a predator.

    Systematic imaging reveals features and changing localization of mRNAs in Drosophila development

    Helena Jambor et al.
    Genome wide analysis reveals that many transcripts are localized in cells of the ovary and that the localization status of mRNAs changes over time and in different cell types.

    Symptom evolution following the emergence of maize streak virus

    Adérito L Monjane et al.
    Phylogenetic analyses demonstrate an evolutionary trade-off between the amount of harm inflicted by a broad host-range virus and how effectively the virus positions itself within plants to enable onward transmission.

    Tissue-specific regulation of BMP signaling by Drosophila N-glycanase 1

    Antonio Galeone et al.
    N-glycanase 1 is required for a BMP autoregulatory loop in the visceral mesoderm and for intestinal development in Drosophila.
