    Two locus inheritance of non-syndromic midline craniosynostosis via rare SMAD6 and common BMP2 alleles

    Andrew T Timberlake et al.
    Epistatic interactions of rare loss of function mutations in SMAD6 and a common variant modifier near BMP2 are the most common cause of midline craniosynostosis in humans.

    Altered bone growth dynamics prefigure craniosynostosis in a zebrafish model of Saethre-Chotzen syndrome

    Camilla S Teng et al.
    Sequential live imaging of abnormal skull bone fusion in zebrafish reveals a deeply conserved role of two transcription factors, Twist1 and Tcf12, in regulating stem cell activity during growth of the skull.

    Neural crest-specific deletion of Rbfox2 in mice leads to craniofacial abnormalities including cleft palate

    Dasan Mary Cibi et al.
    The identification of the splicing code and all the required components of alternative splicing will be crucial for a comprehensive understanding of this process in the neural crest cell biology.

    Resolving homology in the face of shifting germ layer origins: Lessons from a major skull vault boundary

    Camilla S Teng et al.
    Homology of vertebrate skull structures should be based on evolutionary continuity and an appreciation of germ layer origins and inductive signaling in the embryonic head.

    Quantification of gene expression patterns to reveal the origins of abnormal morphogenesis

    Neus Martínez-Abadías et al.
    Quantitative analyses associating the morphology of developing organs with dynamic gene expression patterns can reveal biological phenomena that cause malformations and malfunction but remain elusive to traditional qualitative assessments.

    Transcriptional landscape of myogenesis from human pluripotent stem cells reveals a key role of TWIST1 in maintenance of skeletal muscle progenitors

    In Young Choi et al.
    Using multiple genetic reporter system in human pluripotent stem cells, a transcriptional database for human early myogenesis has been established.

    Elucidation of a four-site allosteric network in fibroblast growth factor receptor tyrosine kinases

    Huaibin Chen et al.
    A four-switch long-range allosteric network controls FGF receptor kinase conformational dynamics as well as activity and is applicable to other receptor tyrosine kinases.
