    A novel biosensor to study cAMP dynamics in cilia and flagella

    Shatanik Mukherjee et al.
    A new FRET-based cAMP biosensor with nanomolar sensitivity makes it possible to measure cAMP dynamics in miniscule subcellular compartments like cilia and flagella.

    Notch/Her12 signalling modulates, motile/immotile cilia ratio downstream of Foxj1a in zebrafish left-right organizer

    Barbara Tavares et al.
    Foxj1a makes cilia ultrastructurally motile, while Notch signalling stops cilia movement in Kupffer's vesicle.

    Origin and role of the cerebrospinal fluid bidirectional flow in the central canal

    Olivier Thouvenin et al.
    The combination of data and modelling shows the mechanisms underlying bidirectional flow of cerebrospinal fluid and its impact on long range transport in the CSF between brain and spinal cord.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: From molecular manipulation of domesticated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to survival in nature

    Severin Sasso et al.
    Dubbed the 'green yeast', the model alga C. reinhardtii has profoundly advanced many areas of biology, but much remains to be learnt about its life in the wild.

    Stimulation of Piezo1 by mechanical signals promotes bone anabolism

    Xuehua Li et al.
    Mechanical stimuli activate Piezo1 in osteoblast lineage cells and thereby promote bone formation in part via Wnt1.

    Dynamic change of electrostatic field in TMEM16F permeation pathway shifts its ion selectivity

    Wenlei Ye et al.
    TMEM16F shifts its ion selectivity in response to change of intracellular Ca2+, membrane potential and ionic strength.

    The Caenorhabditis elegans Tubby homolog dynamically modulates olfactory cilia membrane morphogenesis and phospholipid composition

    Danielle DiTirro et al.
    A Tubby protein regulates ciliary membrane morphology and phosphoinositide composition in a context-dependent manner.

    PLK4 promotes centriole duplication by phosphorylating STIL to link the procentriole cartwheel to the microtubule wall

    Tyler Chistopher Moyer, Andrew Jon Holland
    Cell biological, biochemical, and genetic analyses reveal that PLK4 controls two different phospho-dependent binding interactions that act together to promote procentriole assembly.

    Length-dependent disassembly maintains four different flagellar lengths in Giardia

    Shane G McInally et al.
    Giardia, a multi-ciliated parasitic protist, maintains four different flagellar lengths by balancing flagellar length-independent IFT-mediated assembly with length-dependent kinesin-13 mediated disassembly.

    Notch signalling maintains Hedgehog responsiveness via a Gli-dependent mechanism during spinal cord patterning in zebrafish

    Craig T Jacobs, Peng Huang
    Genetic analyses combining photoconvertible cell signalling reporters with gain- and loss-of function manipulations reveal a novel role for Notch signalling in controlling Hedgehog response in neural progenitor cells.
