    The major β-catenin/E-cadherin junctional binding site is a primary molecular mechano-transductor of differentiation in vivo

    Jens-Christian Röper et al.
    The primary molecular mechanosensor involved in a physiological process of mechanically induced cell fate differentiation is revealed here for the first time in vivo, highly sensitive and potentially shared by all metazoan epithelia.

    Vascular permeability in retinopathy is regulated by VEGFR2 Y949 signaling to VE-cadherin

    Ross O Smith et al.
    Pathological vessel leakage in mouse retinopathy models depends on VE-cadherin Y685 phosphorylation status, which in turn is regulated by a signaling cascade originating with VEGFR2 Y949 phosphorylation.

    N-cadherin-regulated FGFR ubiquitination and degradation control mammalian neocortical projection neuron migration

    Elif Kon et al.
    FGFRs regulate multipolar cortical neuron orientation and the morphological change into bipolar cells in vivo under the control of N-Cadherin and the extracellular matrix protein Reelin.

    Patterned cortical tension mediated by N-cadherin controls cell geometric order in the Drosophila eye

    Eunice HoYee Chan et al.
    N-cadherin at heterotypic contacts controls the level and asymmetric localisation of Myosin-II motor, thereby influencing cell shapes and cell packing.

    An internal thioester in a pathogen surface protein mediates covalent host binding

    Miriam Walden et al.
    Bacterial-encoded covalent adhesion is a new molecular principle in host-microbe interactions and may play a key role in host colonization by a wide range of Gram-positive bacteria.

    Coverage and system efficiencies of insecticide-treated nets in Africa from 2000 to 2017

    Samir Bhatt et al.
    Insecticide-treated net requirements for Africa have been underestimated, but mitigating for inefficiencies in net distributions can produce a cost effective path to universal coverage.

    Loss of Tsc1 in cerebellar Purkinje cells induces transcriptional and translation changes in FMRP target transcripts

    Jasbir Singh Dalal et al.
    Tsc1 mutation in cerebellar Purkinje cells leads to downregulation of synapse genes that are targets of the Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein.

    An essential role for MEF2C in the cortical response to loss of sleep in mice

    Theresa E Bjorness et al.
    The transcription factor, MEF2C, mediates a change in approximately one half of the expressed frontal cortical transcriptome controlling cellular metabolism and synaptic strength in response to acute loss of sleep.

    eNOS-induced vascular barrier disruption in retinopathy by c-Src activation and tyrosine phosphorylation of VE-cadherin

    Takeshi Ninchoji et al.
    Vascular leakage from pathological vessels in retinopathy aggravates the disease, but endothelial junction stability and barrier integrity can be restored by blocking formation of nitric oxide.

    Heparan sulfates are critical regulators of the inhibitory megakaryocyte-platelet receptor G6b-B

    Timo Vögtle et al.
    Heparan sulfates in the vessel wall bind and regulate signaling from the megakaryocyte/platelet-specific inhibitory receptor G6b-B, a critical regulator of platelet homeostasis.
