    Male-predominant galanin mediates androgen-dependent aggressive chases in medaka

    Junpei Yamashita et al.
    In medaka fish, galanin-expressing neurons in the medial preoptic area occur nearly exclusively in males and mediate androgen-dependent male–male aggressive chases.

    TAF4, a subunit of transcription factor II D, directs promoter occupancy of nuclear receptor HNF4A during post-natal hepatocyte differentiation

    Daniil Alpern et al.
    Physical and functional interactions between HNF4A and TAF4 coordinate HNF4A genomic occupancy with pre-initiation complex formation to activate post-natal hepatocyte gene expression.

    Selective dephosphorylation by PP2A-B55 directs the meiosis I-meiosis II transition in oocytes

    S Zachary Swartz et al.
    Time-course phosphoproteomics reveals that selective dephosphorylation is critical for directing the MI/MII transition and that, through its inherent phospho-threonine preference, PP2A-B55 imposes specific phosphoregulated behaviors that distinguish the two meiotic divisions.

    A large genomic insertion containing a duplicated follistatin gene is linked to the pea aphid male wing dimorphism

    Binshuang Li et al.
    The application of long-read sequencing to the pea aphid wing dimorphism system reveals genomic structural divergence as a genetic mechanism of adaptation.

    Neuropeptide B mediates female sexual receptivity in medaka fish, acting in a female-specific but reversible manner

    Towako Hiraki-Kajiyama et al.
    In the brain of medaka fish, neuropeptide B acts directly downstream of estrogen in a female-specific but reversible manner to mediate female receptivity to male courtship.

    Exosome component 1 cleaves single-stranded DNA and sensitizes human kidney renal clear cell carcinoma cells to poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor

    Qiaoling Liu et al.
    EXOSC1 acts as an endogenous source of mutation inkidney renalclear cell carcinoma via cleaving single-stranded DNA.

    The Apelin receptor enhances Nodal/TGFβ signaling to ensure proper cardiac development

    Ashish R Deshwar et al.
    The Apelin receptor acts as a rheostat to ensure that the proper levels of Nodal signaling are achieved for proper cell fate specification at the onset of gastrulation, in particular for cardiac progenitor development.

    Functional diversity of excitatory commissural interneurons in adult zebrafish

    E Rebecka Björnfors, Abdeljabbar El Manira
    A detailed electrophysiological analysis reveals a new principle for how commissural excitatory interneurons are organised in an adult vertebrate.

    Salt-inducible kinase 3 regulates the mammalian circadian clock by destabilizing PER2 protein

    Naoto Hayasaka et al.
    Salt-inducible kinase 3 (SIK3) is an essential component of the mammalian circadian clock machinery, which governs robust circadian behavioral and other rhythms by destabilization of a core clock protein PER2 in a phosphorylation-dependent manner.

    A century of trends in adult human height

    NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC)
    Height in early adulthood is an indicator that integrates across different dimensions of sustainable human development with links to health and longevity, nutrition, education and economic productivity.
