    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.

    PI3K-Yap activity drives cortical gyrification and hydrocephalus in mice

    Achira Roy et al.
    Embryonic PI3K-Yap activity regulates apical adhesion and proliferation of neural progenitors lining the lateral ventricular surface, to maintain the smooth, non-folded mouse brain and to prevent developmental hydrocephalus.

    Promoting subjective preferences in simple economic choices during nap

    Sizhi Ai et al.
    Neurocognitive processing during sleep selectively biases subjective preferences in simple economic choices when the sleeper is stimulated by covert, reward-associated cues.

    A map of abstract relational knowledge in the human hippocampal–entorhinal cortex

    Mona M Garvert et al.
    Map-like organisations of relational knowledge can be extracted from the hippocampal-entorhinal system in situations where relationships are non-spatial rather than spatial, discrete rather than continuous, and unavailable to conscious awareness.

    Patient-specific mutations impair BESTROPHIN1’s essential role in mediating Ca2+-dependent Cl- currents in human RPE

    Yao Li et al.
    A multidisciplinary platform featured by patient-derived RPEs is established to study the disease-causing mechanisms of BEST1 mutations, and demonstrates gene-supplemented rescue of the mutation-caused deficiency in Ca2+-dependent Cl- current in human RPE.

    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.

    The MAP kinase pathway coordinates crossover designation with disassembly of synaptonemal complex proteins during meiosis

    Saravanapriah Nadarajan et al.
    Coordination between crossover designation and synaptonemal complex disassembly is executed via a conserved MAP kinase pathway and is critical for accurate chromosome segregation during meiosis.

    Muscle contraction is required to maintain the pool of muscle progenitors via YAP and NOTCH during fetal myogenesis

    Joana Esteves de Lima et al.
    A novel mechanism links mechanical signals with the molecular YAP and NOTCH signals operating during developmental myogenesis.

    Regulation of localization and function of the transcriptional co-activator YAP by angiomotin

    Susana Moleirinho et al.
    Phosphorylation of Angiomotin regulates YAP localization and activity.
