    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.

    Notch/Her12 signalling modulates, motile/immotile cilia ratio downstream of Foxj1a in zebrafish left-right organizer

    Barbara Tavares et al.
    Foxj1a makes cilia ultrastructurally motile, while Notch signalling stops cilia movement in Kupffer's vesicle.

    Systematic studies of all PIH proteins in zebrafish reveal their distinct roles in axonemal dynein assembly

    Hiroshi Yamaguchi et al.
    Zebrafish genetics and cryo-electron tomography reveal distinct roles of all vertebrate PIH family proteins in axonemal dynein assembly and cilia/flagella motions, assigning specific dynein subtypes to each PIH protein.

    TEADs, Yap, Taz, Vgll4s transcription factors control the establishment of Left-Right asymmetry in zebrafish

    Jonathan Fillatre et al.
    Transcription factors downstream of Hippo signaling control formation of the Left-Right Organizer by regulating major signaling pathways, expression of transcription factors and regulators of epigenetic programming involved in this process.

    Physical limits of flow sensing in the left-right organizer

    Rita R Ferreira et al.
    Large-scale in vivo imaging of the zebrafish left-right organizer (Kupffer's vesicle) combined with fluid dynamics calculations allows to quantitatively test the possible flow detection mechanisms and supports the flow transport of chemical signals as the mechanism of side determination.

    Ciliary chemosensitivity is enhanced by cilium geometry and motility

    David Hickey et al.
    Chemical receptors located on cilia can achieve particle capture rates that are many times higher than receptors located on a flat epithelial surface.

    An oxygen-insensitive Hif-3α isoform inhibits Wnt signaling by destabilizing the nuclear β-catenin complex

    Peng Zhang et al.
    Hif/Hif-3α has two distinct roles in cells: activating HRE-dependent gene expression and binding to β-catenin to destabilize the nuclear β-catenin complex.

    A hyperspectral method to assay the microphysiological fates of nanomaterials in histological samples

    Elliott D SoRelle et al.
    A new technique for biodistribution and targeted uptake studies of nanoparticle imaging agents is demonstrated and used to achieve levels of detail that are inaccessible through existing methods.

    Apical contacts stemming from incomplete delamination guide progenitor cell allocation through a dragging mechanism

    Eduardo Pulgar et al.
    Incomplete delamination serves as a cellular platform for coordinated tissue movements during development, guiding newly formed progenitor cell groups to the differentiation site.
