    Control of PNG kinase, a key regulator of mRNA translation, is coupled to meiosis completion at egg activation

    Masatoshi Hara et al.
    The kinase that controls maternal mRNA translation is regulated by phosphorylation of its activating subunit to restrict kinase activity to the developmental window between meiosis completion and early embryogenesis.
  1. eLife Community Ambassadors: 243 volunteers join the programme in 2019

    Diverse researchers from across the world are joining forces to promote responsible behaviours in science.
  2. Rebooting reproducibility: From re-execution to replication

    Critical questions for building and employing more useful tools for reproducible research.
  3. Complex learning dismantles barriers in the brain

    Asymmetric neurogenic commitment of retinal progenitors involves Notch through the endocytic pathway

    Elisa Nerli et al.
    A quantitative live imaging approach unveils that earliest neurogenic progenitors in the vertebrate retina arise from asymmetric divisions and that this asymmetry involves Notch signalling through the endocytic pathway.

    Molecular structures of the eukaryotic retinal importer ABCA4

    Fangyu Liu et al.
    The structures of ABCA4 in two conformations provide a framework to understand its transport mechanism.

    Odd-paired is a pioneer-like factor that coordinates with Zelda to control gene expression in embryos

    Theodora Koromila et al.
    The gene Odd-paired is a late-acting regulator of zygotic gene expression, functioning coordinately with Zelda to influence chromatin accessibility and affecting genes expressed along both axes of Drosophila embryos.

    A regulatory pathway that selectively up-regulates elongasome function in the absence of class A PBPs

    Yesha Patel et al.
    Balanced peptidoglycan synthesis requires regulators, including sigma-I and WalKR, that coordinate the diffusive action of class A PBPs and the directional motion of the MreB-directed elongasome.

    A divergent cyclin/cyclin-dependent kinase complex controls the atypical replication of a malaria parasite during gametogony and transmission

    Aurélia C Balestra et al.
    Multiple steps of the atypical cell cycles underlying Plasmodium gametogony are controlled by a divergent cyclin/cyclin-dependent complex.

    Extrinsic activin signaling cooperates with an intrinsic temporal program to increase mushroom body neuronal diversity

    Anthony M Rossi, Claude Desplan
    The activin ligand myoglianin acts as a temporal extrinsic cue to regulate the intrinsic temporal factor Imp in mushroom body neuroblasts, increasing neuronal diversity by specifying the α’β’ fate.
