    Analysis of cellular behavior and cytoskeletal dynamics reveal a constriction mechanism driving optic cup morphogenesis

    María Nicolás-Pérez et al.
    High-resolution live imaging analysis shows a constriction mechanism that drives zebrafish optic cup morphogenesis and highlights the role of the extracellular matrix in transmitting tensions beyond the cellular level.

    Conditional deletion of WT1 in the septum transversum mesenchyme causes congenital diaphragmatic hernia in mice

    Rita Carmona et al.
    Expression of the transcription factor Wt1 is required in a lateral mesoderm domain to develop the mesenchymal population required for the closure of the pleural cavities and the formation of the diaphragm.

    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.

    Pharmacological targeting of the transcription factor SOX18 delays breast cancer in mice

    Jeroen Overman et al.
    A novel molecular strategy to block transcription factor activity using small molecule interference of multiple protein-protein interactions is reported.

    Bi-fated tendon-to-bone attachment cells are regulated by shared enhancers and KLF transcription factors

    Shiri Kult et al.
    The molecular identity of bi-fated tendon-to-bone attachment cells, which display a mixture of transcriptomes of two neighboring cell types, enables the formation of the unique transitional tissue of the enthesis.

    OTX2 represses sister cell fate choices in the developing retina to promote photoreceptor specification

    Miruna Georgiana Ghinia Tegla et al.
    A retinal gene regulatory network prevents the formation of alternative cell fates from non-stochastic retinal progenitor cells.

    The Apelin receptor enhances Nodal/TGFβ signaling to ensure proper cardiac development

    Ashish R Deshwar et al.
    The Apelin receptor acts as a rheostat to ensure that the proper levels of Nodal signaling are achieved for proper cell fate specification at the onset of gastrulation, in particular for cardiac progenitor development.

    The flow responsive transcription factor Klf2 is required for myocardial wall integrity by modulating Fgf signaling

    Seyed Javad Rasouli et al.
    Endocardial Klf2 regulates cardiomyocyte adhesion and myocardial wall integrity by modulating FGF signaling in zebrafish.

    Distinct myocardial lineages break atrial symmetry during cardiogenesis in zebrafish

    Almary Guerra et al.
    A discovery of two previously unknown, molecularly distinct fields of cardiac progenitors in zebrafish provides evidence for cardiac laterality prior to the emergence of cardiac septation and allows novel insights into cardiac development and disease.

    Vascular remodeling is governed by a VEGFR3-dependent fluid shear stress set point

    Nicolas Baeyens et al.
    Flow-dependent remodeling of blood vessels is critical for normal physiology and for recovery from arterial blockage in disease; understanding its cellular mechanisms may lead to the development of treatments for patients that are deficient in this process following myocardial infarction or other vascular diseases.
