    Evolutionary expansion of apical extracellular matrix is required for the elongation of cells in a novel structure

    Sarah Jacquelyn Smith et al.
    A new morphological structure evolved through extreme changes in cell height requires novel connections to an extracellular matrix network, which predates the origin of structure.

    Retrocopying expands the functional repertoire of APOBEC3 antiviral proteins in primates

    Lei Yang et al.
    Genomes take advantage of the gene-duplicating ability of retroelements to birth novel innate immune defense genes.

    Maternal spindle transfer overcomes embryo developmental arrest caused by ooplasmic defects in mice

    Nuno Costa-Borges et al.
    Maternal spindle transfer is a feasible approach to enhance embryonic developmental of compromised oocytes, which can represent a new strategy for patients with forms of infertility refractory to current treatments.

    Bmal1 integrates mitochondrial metabolism and macrophage activation

    Ryan K Alexander et al.
    Macrophage Bmal1 controls the timing of the glycolytic to oxidative metabolism transition that dictates the extent of Hif-1a activation and the associated inflammatory response.

    Lin28a/let-7 pathway modulates the Hox code via Polycomb regulation during axial patterning in vertebrates

    Tempei Sato et al.
    Genetic analyses reveal that the loss of Lin28a causes axial shortening with mild skeletal transformations via decreased PRC1 at Hox genes, establishing a new pathway in the “Hox code.”.

    A tudor domain protein, SIMR-1, promotes siRNA production at piRNA-targeted mRNAs in C. elegans

    Kevin I Manage et al.
    SIMR-1 acts downstream of the piRNA pathway to promote siRNA amplification by the Mutator complex and localizes to perinuclear foci distinct from Mutator foci, P granules and Z granules.

    TUBB4A mutations result in both glial and neuronal degeneration in an H-ABC leukodystrophy mouse model

    Sunetra Sase et al.
    H-ABC leukodystrophy results in neurologic decline, hypomyelination and atrophy of the striatum and cerebellum and Tubb4aD249N/D249Nmouse model recapitulates features of H-ABC disease, providing an important tool for therapeutic development.

    The Warburg Effect and lactate signaling augment Fgf-MAPK to promote sensory-neural development in the otic vesicle

    Husniye Kantarci et al.
    Glycolysis is locally enhanced and redirected in zebrafish to generate lactate, which functions as a signaling molecule to fully activate Fgf target genes required for proper sensory and neural development.

    Bacterial contribution to genesis of the novel germ line determinant oskar

    Leo Blondel et al.
    Evidence suggests that the oskar gene, a critical germ line determinant in insects, was formed by fusion of bacterial and eukaryotic sequences at least 450 million years ago.
