    Distribution of neurosensory progenitor pools during inner ear morphogenesis unveiled by cell lineage reconstruction

    Sylvia Dyballa et al.
    The first dynamic map of early neuronal and sensory progenitors in the whole otic vesicle reveals how progenitor domains remodel upon morphogenesis.

    Retinal stem cells modulate proliferative parameters to coordinate post-embryonic morphogenesis in the eye of fish

    Erika Tsingos et al.
    3D niche topology imposes a spatially biased random stem cell loss, which is differentially fine-tuned in neural retina and retinal pigmented epithelium to regulate growth, shape, and cellular topology.

    Notch signaling restricts FGF pathway activation in parapineal cells to promote their collective migration

    Lu Wei et al.
    Notch signaling controls the collective migration of parapineal cells through its capacity to restrict FGF pathway activation to a few leading cells.

    Embryonic attenuated Wnt/β-catenin signaling defines niche location and long-term stem cell fate in hair follicle

    Zijian Xu et al.
    Long-term hair follicle stem cells arise by embryonic progenitor cells occupying a niche location that is defined by attenuated Wnt/β-catenin signal.

    Epithelial colonies in vitro elongate through collective effects

    Jordi Comelles et al.
    Spontaneous elongation of epithelial colonies is related to the orientation of the mean nematic cell elongation field, as shown and tested with experiments and theory.

    Theoretical tool bridging cell polarities with development of robust morphologies

    Silas Boye Nissen et al.
    Biological shapes and morphological transitions can emerge from combining directed interactions between cells with apical-basal and planar cell polarity.

    Lamellar projections in the endolymphatic sac act as a relief valve to regulate inner ear pressure

    Ian A Swinburne et al.
    The pressure of fluid in the inner ear is controlled by opening of cellular valves in the endolymphatic sac to allow for regulated transepithelial fluid flow.

    A novel mechanism of gland formation in zebrafish involving transdifferentiation of renal epithelial cells and live cell extrusion

    Richard W Naylor et al.
    A rare example of direct transdifferentiation is discovered in zebrafish in which kidney epithelial cells change into an endocrine gland and undergo live-cell extrusion from the renal tubule.

    A model symbiosis reveals a role for sheathed-flagellum rotation in the release of immunogenic lipopolysaccharide

    Caitlin A Brennan et al.
    Both beneficial and pathogenic bacteria can use their sheathed flagella during host colonization as a novel toxin-/signal-delivery mechanism.

    Cytoskeletal tension and Bazooka tune interface geometry to ensure fusion fidelity and sheet integrity during dorsal closure

    Piyal Taru Das Gupta, Maithreyi Narasimha
    Restoration of molecular and morphological symmetry and mechanical integrity following epithelial fusion relies on adaptive changes that are mediated by cytoskeletal tension and Bazooka dependent modulation of fusing interface geometry.
