    Neuromodulatory connectivity defines the structure of a behavioral neural network

    Feici Diao et al.
    Using targeted functional manipulations of neural activity to map neuromodulatory connections can deliver considerable insight into the functional architecture of a behaviorally important network even in the absence of information about its synaptic connectivity.

    Stereotyped responses of Drosophila peptidergic neuronal ensemble depend on downstream neuromodulators

    Wilson Mena et al.
    The response of the peptidergic neurons that control a stereotyped behavior depends on the actions of a triggering neuropeptide, downstream neuropeptides and GABA inhibitory influences.

    Ancient origins of arthropod moulting pathway components

    André Luiz de Oliveira et al.
    Evolutionary reconstruction of the ecdysis pathway shows that its major elements are present in the majority of metazoans, providing evidence that they originated much earlier than currently assumed.

    A single-cell transcriptomic atlas of the adult Drosophila ventral nerve cord

    Aaron M Allen et al.
    A single-cell atlas of the adult fly VNC charts the types and properties of cells for future studies of brain development and function.

    Nutritional control of body size through FoxO-Ultraspiracle mediated ecdysone biosynthesis

    Takashi Koyama et al.
    In Drosophila melanogaster, nutrition controls body size by acting through the Forkhead Box class O (FoxO)/Ultraspiracle complex to regulate nutrition-sensitive ecdysone biosynthesis, thereby controlling the switch to stop growth.

    mRNA decapping is an evolutionarily conserved modulator of neuroendocrine signaling that controls development and ageing

    Fivos Borbolis et al.
    mRNA decapping function in neuronal cells regulates neurosecretion and intertissue signaling, affecting developmental and ageing processes in two model organisms.

    The Photorhabdus asymbiotica virulence cassettes deliver protein effectors directly into target eukaryotic cells

    Isabella Vlisidou et al.
    The insect pathogenic bacterium Photorhabdus has evolved astonishing nano-scale analogues of hypodermic syringes that it uses to inject toxins into host cells.

    Countercurrent heat exchange and thermoregulation during blood-feeding in kissing bugs

    Chloé Lahondère et al.
    A novel thermoregulatory mechanism in blood-sucking insects, vectors of human disease, is described using a functional-morphological approach.

    Drosophila sessile hemocyte clusters are true hematopoietic tissues that regulate larval blood cell differentiation

    Alexandre B Leitão, Élio Sucena
    Blood cell transdifferentiation in Drosophila generates larval crystal cells through Notch-dependent signaling.
