    Obtaining and maintaining cortical hand representation as evidenced from acquired and congenital handlessness

    Daan B Wesselink et al.
    fMRI results show that despite arm amputation, and varying degrees of phantom sensations, canonical hand representation in primary somatosensory cortex is largely maintained.

    Dual role for Jumu in the control of hematopoietic progenitors in the Drosophila lymph gland

    Yangguang Hao, Li Hua Jin
    Jumu is required for the proper differentiation of prohemocytes and the proliferation and location of PSC cells.

    Conversion of random X-inactivation to imprinted X-inactivation by maternal PRC2

    Clair Harris et al.
    The PRC2 Polycomb complex made in the mouse oocyte prevents transcriptional inactivation of the maternal X-chromosome in the early embryo.

    Large, long range tensile forces drive convergence during Xenopus blastopore closure and body axis elongation

    David R Shook et al.
    Blastopore closure in Xenopus is driven by two morphogenic mechanisms that have strongly context dependent effects on tissue movement and that generate tensile force across tissues: convergent extension, as expected, and, unexpectedly, convergent thickening.

    The ceramide synthase 2b gene mediates genomic sensing and regulation of sphingosine levels during zebrafish embryogenesis

    Karen Mendelson et al.
    Developing oocytes lacking Sphk2 sense high sphingosine levels and transcriptionally activate expression of the gene encoding Cers2b, to mediate a salvage pathway to reduce potentially toxic sphingosine.

    Pitx2c orchestrates embryonic axis extension via mesendodermal cell migration

    Michelle M Collins et al.
    Expression of Pitx2c at the onset of gastrulation drives convergence and extension movements in the zebrafish embryo by promoting downstream pathways affecting chemokine signaling, integrin-ECM interactions, and planar cell polarity components.

    Yap1 promotes sprouting and proliferation of lymphatic progenitors downstream of Vegfc in the zebrafish trunk

    Lin Grimm et al.
    Genetic studies reveal a role for Yap1 in lymphatic endothelial progenitor cell sprouting and proliferation during early zebrafish lymphatic vascular development.

    The vascular niche controls Drosophila hematopoiesis via fibroblast growth factor signaling

    Manon Destalminil-Letourneau et al.
    Two niches contribute to the control of Drosophila blood cell homeostasis through their differential regulation of hematopoietic progenitors.

    Fatty acid β-oxidation is required for the differentiation of larval hematopoietic progenitors in Drosophila

    Satish Kumar Tiwari et al.
    Genetic and molecular analyses reveal the decisive role of fatty acid oxidation (FAO) acting downstream to the ROS-JNK circuit essential for hemocyte progenitor differentiation in Drosophila..

    Genetic and environmental influences on adult human height across birth cohorts from 1886 to 1994

    Aline Jelenkovic et al.
    Genetic variance of adult human height shows a generally increasing trend across the birth-year cohorts but heritability estimates do not present any clear pattern of secular changes over a century.
