    Distinct roles for innexin gap junctions and hemichannels in mechanosensation

    Denise S Walker, William R Schafer
    The innexin protein UNC-7, a homologue of vertebrate pannexins, plays a specific, gap junction-independent role in C. elegans mechanosensation.

    Structural model for differential cap maturation at growing microtubule ends

    Juan Estévez-Gallego et al.
    The tubulin GTPase cycle structurally modulates the microtubule cap, causing lattice expansion, which is an intermediate state involved in phosphate release and regulatory signaling.

    YAP drives cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma formation and progression

    Zoé Vincent-Mistiaen et al.
    High levels of nuclear YAP are sufficient to drive squamous cell carincoma formation and frequently also drive progression to spindle cell carcinoma by promoting epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition after tissue damage.

    PARIS, an optogenetic method for functionally mapping gap junctions

    Ling Wu et al.
    As the first fully genetically encoded method, PARIS allows cell-specific, long-term, repeated measurements of gap junctional coupling with high spatiotemporal resolution, facilitating its study in both health and disease.

    YAP controls retinal stem cell DNA replication timing and genomic stability

    Pauline Cabochette et al.
    The Hippo pathway downstream effector YAP regulates S-phase progression to protect neural stem cells of the retina from experiencing genomic instability.

    Yap-lin28a axis targets let7-Wnt pathway to restore progenitors for initiating regeneration

    Zhian Ye et al.
    Atoh1+ HC precursors survive post severe injury and activate the Yap-Lin28 pathway to restore progenitor for initiating regeneration.

    YAP regulates cell size and growth dynamics via non-cell autonomous mediators

    Douaa Mugahid et al.
    Besides a cell autonomous role in regulating proliferation, YAP regulates the production of several extracellular molecules allowing for population-level coordination of cell growth and death.

    Enrichment drives emergence of functional columns and improves sensory coding in the whisker map in L2/3 of mouse S1

    Amy M LeMessurier et al.
    Sensory enrichment creates a more columnar, less salt-and-pepper whisker map in somatosensory cortex, showing that impoverished experience contributes to intermixed tuning in rodent sensory maps.

    Homeostatic and tumourigenic activity of SOX2+ pituitary stem cells is controlled by the LATS/YAP/TAZ cascade

    Emily J Lodge et al.
    The LATS/YAP/TAZ cascade promotes SOX2+ pituitary stem cell fate and when over-activated, transforms normal stem cells into cancer stem cells.

    Yap1 safeguards mouse embryonic stem cells from excessive apoptosis during differentiation

    Lucy LeBlanc et al.
    During ES cell differentiation, Yap1 directly regulates apoptosis-related genes like Bcl-2 and Mcl-1 to attenuate apoptosis and promote cell survival to allow for successful cell fate changes.
