    Autoregulatory control of microtubule binding in doublecortin-like kinase 1

    Regina L Agulto et al.
    Doublecortin-like kinase 1 modulates its own kinase activity to tune its microtubule-binding affinity, providing molecular insights into a unique form of autoregulatory control over microtubule-binding activity.

    Axon injury triggers EFA-6 mediated destabilization of axonal microtubules via TACC and doublecortin like kinase

    Lizhen Chen et al.
    Severing axons in C. elegans reveals a mechanism by which the axons sense acute damage and respond by sequential remodeling of their microtubule cytoskeleton.

    Structural development and dorsoventral maturation of the medial entorhinal cortex

    Saikat Ray, Michael Brecht
    The medial entorhinal cortex is important for spatial memory formation and matures from dorsal, where smaller spatial-scales are represented, to ventral, where larger spatial-scales are represented.

    Visualization of stem cell activity in pancreatic cancer expansion by direct lineage tracing with live imaging

    Takahisa Maruno et al.
    Genetic lineage tracing approach combined with live imaging visualized the functional stem cell activity of Doublecortin-like kinase 1+ cells within pancreatic cancer in vivo.

    Structural model for differential cap maturation at growing microtubule ends

    Juan Estévez-Gallego et al.
    The tubulin GTPase cycle structurally modulates the microtubule cap, causing lattice expansion, which is an intermediate state involved in phosphate release and regulatory signaling.

    Autophagy linked FYVE (Alfy/WDFY3) is required for establishing neuronal connectivity in the mammalian brain

    Joanna M Dragich et al.
    Loss of function of the selective autophagy adaptor protein Alfy/Wdfy3 leads to profound wiring defects from the forebrain through to the spinal cord, highlighting the growing importance for macroautophagy in the developing brain.

    Phylogenetic variation in cortical layer II immature neuron reservoir of mammals

    Chiara La Rosa et al.
    The higher amount of cortical immature neurons in brains with expanded neocortices may represent a reservoir of young cells for mammals with reduced neurogenesis.

    MicroRNA-934 is a novel primate-specific small non-coding RNA with neurogenic function during early development

    Kanella Prodromidou et al.
    Primate-specific miR-934 mediates neurogenesis and downstream neuronal differentiation processes, modulating the expression of genes associated with the subplate, a region most prominent in primates, emerging during early cortical development.

    Species-specific maturation profiles of human, chimpanzee and bonobo neural cells

    Maria C Marchetto et al.
    Using iPSCs as a model to study neurodevelopmental differences between human and nonhuman primates lays the groundwork for understanding aspects of human brain evolution and neurological disease susceptibility.

    5'-UTR SNP of FGF13 causes translational defect and intellectual disability

    Xingyu Pan et al.
    A 5'-UTR SNP of FGF13 impairs PTBP2 interacting with FGF13 mRNA, leading to reduced FGF13 translation and deficits in brain development and cognitive functions.
