    Fetal and trophoblast PI3K p110α have distinct roles in regulating resource supply to the growing fetus in mice

    Jorge López-Tello et al.
    Fetus and trophoblast interplay to regulate fetal nutrient supply and, ultimately, affect healthy growth.
  1. A paralyzed bee buried with a wasp egg

    Episode 59: June 2019

    In this episode, we hear about the emerging field of palaeoshellomics, wasp eggs that keep their food fresh, a monkey with a missing visual cortex, new biological methods inspired by astronomy and how to mix a family with a research career.

    Identification of RBPMS as a mammalian smooth muscle master splicing regulator via proximity of its gene with super-enhancers

    Erick E Nakagaki-Silva et al.
    By focusing on RNA-binding proteins whose genes have super enhancers in smooth muscle cells, the protein RBPMS was identified as an alternative splicing master regulator.
    1. Developmental Biology

    Glycosylphosphatidylinositol biosynthesis and remodeling are required for neural tube closure, heart development, and cranial neural crest cell survival

    Marshall Lukacs et al.
    Anchoring of proteins to the cell membrane through the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor is critical for the survival of the cells that will give rise to the brain and face.

    Detailed analysis of chick optic fissure closure reveals Netrin-1 as an essential mediator of epithelial fusion

    Holly Hardy et al.
    Chick optic fissure closure is a powerful new model system for epithelial fusion and has revealed Netrin-1 as a conserved and essential mediator of tissue fusion in multiple contexts.

    Predicting development of adolescent drinking behaviour from whole brain structure at 14 years of age

    Simone Kühn et al.
    Trajectories of adolescent drinking behavior between age 14 and 19 years can be predicted from bilateral striatal and cerebellar grey matter at 14 years of age.

    Positive and negative incentive contrasts lead to relative value perception in ants

    Stephanie Wendt et al.
    Relative value perception, a basic tenant of Behavioural Economics, is demonstrated in an insect, and further shown to be driven by cognitive processes and induced by private and social information.

    Liquid-crystal organization of liver tissue

    Hernán Morales-Navarrete et al.
    Bidirectional communication between hepatocytes and sinusoids governs long-range liquid-crystal order of hepatocyte polarity.

    Robo2 regulates synaptic oxytocin content by affecting actin dynamics

    Savani Anbalagan et al.
    Real-time monitoring of oxytocin-loaded vesicles and synaptic actin dynamics in zebrafish reveal that Slit3-Robo2-Cdc42 signalling maintains steady-state levels of mature oxytocin neuropeptide readily primed to be secreted upon physiological demand.

    KLK3/PSA and cathepsin D activate VEGF-C and VEGF-D

    Sawan Kumar Jha et al.
    Both VEGF-C and VEGF-D can be activated by KLK3/PSA and Cathepsin D, producing two novel VEGF-C forms and the known VEGFR-2-specific form of VEGF-D.
