    A mammalian Wnt5a–Ror2–Vangl2 axis controls the cytoskeleton and confers cellular properties required for alveologenesis

    Kuan Zhang et al.
    Regulation of cellular properties such as ligand secretion and migratory ability through changes in the cytoskeleton mediated by a Wnt5a–Ror2–Vangl2 axis is a major determinant of alveolar formation.

    Synapse maintenance and restoration in the retina by NGL2

    Florentina Soto et al.
    Single cell knockout and overexpression reveal that the synaptic cell adhesion molecule NGL2 maintains synapses and axons, and can restore lost connections in the developing and mature retina.

    Molecular assembly of the period-cryptochrome circadian transcriptional repressor complex

    Shannon N Nangle et al.
    X-ray crystallography reveals the structural framework for understanding the function of mammalian transcriptional repression in the cellular circadian clock.

    Vangl2 acts at the interface between actin and N-cadherin to modulate mammalian neuronal outgrowth

    Steve Dos-Santos Carvalho et al.
    The core PCP protein acts as a internal brake to neuronal outgrowth.

    A novel GTP-binding protein–adaptor protein complex responsible for export of Vangl2 from the trans Golgi network

    Yusong Guo et al.
    The ability of epithelial cells to distinguish between domains on opposing cell surfaces within a tissue, a property known as planar cell polarity, relies on proteins and protein complexes directing the traffic of signaling proteins to specific locations on the cell surface membrane.

    Alcids ‘fly’ at efficient Strouhal numbers in both air and water but vary stroke velocity and angle

    Anthony B Lapsansky et al.
    Four species of seabird produce efficient propulsive wakes while flying in the air and while swimming underwater suggesting that selection has optimized these species for locomotion in remarkably different fluids.

    Real time dynamics of Gating-Related conformational changes in CorA

    Martina Rangl et al.
    High-speed atomic force microscopy reveals that the open state of the divalent ion channel CorA is highly dynamic and defined by the fast exchange between conformations.

    Wnt proteins can direct planar cell polarity in vertebrate ectoderm

    Chih-Wen Chu, Sergei Y Sokol
    Vertebrate early ectoderm displays planar polarity manifested by a fluorescent sensor and this polarity can be instructed by Wnt ligands.

    Par3 interacts with Prickle3 to generate apical PCP complexes in the vertebrate neural plate

    Ilya Chuykin et al.
    Par3 is polarized in the plane of the vertebrate neural plate, binds and recruits Prickle3 to the apical membrane and promotes the formation of core planar cell polarity complexes.

    Stem cell transplantation rescued a primary open-angle glaucoma mouse model

    Siqi Xiong et al.
    Stem cell transplantation reduces intraocular pressure and preserves retinal ganglion cell function in a mouse glaucoma model, which could lead to a novel therapy for glaucoma to preserve vision.
