    Body size-dependent energy storage causes Kleiber’s law scaling of the metabolic rate in planarians

    Albert Thommen et al.
    A combination of experimental and theoretical analysis identifies body size-dependent energy storage as the physiological cause of 3/4-power law scaling of the metabolic rate in planarians.

    A synthetic planar cell polarity system reveals localized feedback on Fat4-Ds1 complexes

    Olga Loza et al.
    Localized feedback on Fa4-Ds1 boundary complexes underlies polarized distribution of Fat4 and Ds1 and gives rise to planar cell polarity.

    Planar cell polarity signaling coordinates oriented cell division and cell rearrangement in clonally expanding growth plate cartilage

    Yuwei Li et al.
    Through the interaction between PCP signaling and N-cadherin, oriented cell division and cell rearrangement are coordinated to establish the appropriate tissue architecture critical for limb skeletal morphogenesis.

    Selective amputation of the pharynx identifies a FoxA-dependent regeneration program in planaria

    Carolyn E Adler et al.
    A chemical method has been developed for studying single organ regeneration and fate specification of stem cells in an adult organism.

    Cells must express components of the planar cell polarity system and extracellular matrix to support cytonemes

    Hai Huang, Thomas B Kornberg
    Different cytoneme types require specific heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) that are stratified within the extracellular matrix in Drosophila.
