    Protein-based condensation mechanisms drive the assembly of RNA-rich P granules

    Helen Schmidt et al.
    P granule assembly depends in part on protein-protein interactions that drive condensation independent of RNA.

    The EMT transcription factor Snai1 maintains myocardial wall integrity by repressing intermediate filament gene expression

    Alessandra Gentile et al.
    The transcription factor Snai1b maintains the myocardial wall integrity by limiting cell extrusions and regulating the intermediate filament gene desmin b.

    Mechanical heterogeneity along single cell-cell junctions is driven by lateral clustering of cadherins during vertebrate axis elongation

    Robert J Huebner et al.
    Very local molecular patterns impart precise changes in the local mechanics of individual cell-cell junctions.

    Quantitative analyses reveal extracellular dynamics of Wnt ligands in Xenopus embryos

    Yusuke Mii et al.
    Wnt distribution is regulated by a dynamic exchange of its abundant scaffold-bound and rare freely diffusing populations, providing insights into a conceived dilemma of speed and stability of tissue patterning.

    Multiscale analysis of single and double maternal-zygotic Myh9 and Myh10 mutants during mouse preimplantation development

    Markus Frederik Schliffka et al.
    During mouse preimplantation development, the complete loss of actomyosin contractility abolishes cytokinesis but not apico-basal polarisation, lineage specification, or fluid accumulation, which are the critical steps to the formation of the blastocyst.

    The recycling endosome protein Rab25 coordinates collective cell movements in the zebrafish surface epithelium

    Patrick Morley Willoughby et al.
    Rab25a and Rab25b mutant embryos exhibit epithelial spreading delays during morphogenesis and are characterized by cytokinesis defects leading to cell fusions, heterogeneous epithelial cell sizes, and reduced cortical actomyosin contractility.

    Physically asymmetric division of the C. elegans zygote ensures invariably successful embryogenesis

    Radek Jankele et al.
    Systematic analysis of C. elegans zygotes manipulated to divide equally demonstrates that daughter cell size asymmetry is critical for proper cell cycle timing, positioning, and fates during subsequent embryogenesis.

    Visualizing the metazoan proliferation-quiescence decision in vivo

    Rebecca C Adikes et al.
    During organismal development, CDK activity at mitotic exit is predictive of future cell behavior, indicating whether a cell will divide again or enter a quiescent state.

    BUB-1 targets PP2A:B56 to regulate chromosome congression during meiosis I in C. elegans oocytes

    Laura Bel Borja et al.

    Co-movement of astral microtubules, organelles and F-actin by dynein and actomyosin forces in frog egg cytoplasm

    James F Pelletier et al.
    Live imaging of multiple cytoplasmic networks in frog egg extracts calls for new models for how egg cytoplasm is physically organized during cleavage divisions.
