    A mex3 homolog is required for differentiation during planarian stem cell lineage development

    Shu Jun Zhu et al.
    The planarian mex3-1 gene is required for non-stem cell fates and suppresses a stem cell fate in differentiating cells.

    The histone H3K9 demethylase KDM3A promotes anoikis by transcriptionally activating pro-apoptotic genes BNIP3 and BNIP3L

    Victoria E Pedanou et al.
    A large-scale RNA interference screen uncovers a new transcriptional regulatory program involving the histone H3 demethylase KDM3A, which mediates detachment-induced apoptosis (anoikis) in breast epithelial cells.

    Many si/shRNAs can kill cancer cells by targeting multiple survival genes through an off-target mechanism

    William Putzbach et al.
    Loading of CD95 and CD95L-derived sequences into the RNA-induced silencing complex elicits a distinct form of RNAi-mediated cell death of cancer cells that results from the targeting of multiple survival genes.

    Spliceosome factors target timeless (tim) mRNA to control clock protein accumulation and circadian behavior in Drosophila

    Iryna Shakhmantsir et al.
    Alternative splicing provides a mechanism to maintain oscillations of the circadian clock.

    MELK is not necessary for the proliferation of basal-like breast cancer cells

    Hai-Tsang Huang et al.
    The inhibitory or deletion effect of MELK does not impair the proliferation of basal-like breast cancer cell lines.

    Rhodopsin targeted transcriptional silencing by DNA-binding

    Salvatore Botta et al.
    Photoreceptor genomic binding of a 20 base-pair-long DNA sequence by a synthetic DNA-binding protein turns off Rhodopsin expression.

    Reproducibility in Cancer Biology: Pseudogenes, RNAs and new reproducibility norms

    George A Calin
    The partial success of a study to reproduce experiments that linked pseudogenes and cancer proves that understanding RNA networks is more complicated than expected.

    Temperature-dependent fasciation mutants provide a link between mitochondrial RNA processing and lateral root morphogenesis

    Kurataka Otsuka et al.
    Temperature-dependent fasciation mutants of Arabidopsis unexpectedly connect mitochondrial RNA processing to the control of cell proliferation during lateral root morphogenesis via electron transport chain activity and reactive oxygen species production.

    Two consecutive microtubule-based epithelial seaming events mediate dorsal closure in the scuttle fly Megaselia abdita

    Juan Jose Fraire-Zamora et al.
    Evolutionary reduction in tissue number involves the simplification of the seaming process but not signaling during epithelial fusion.

    Neuropeptide ACP facilitates lipid oxidation and utilization during long-term flight in locusts

    Li Hou et al.
    CRISPR/Cas 9 technology and multiple-omics study reveal an essential regulatory role of neuropeptide ACP in lipid utilization related to prolonged flight of locusts.
