    Control of PNG kinase, a key regulator of mRNA translation, is coupled to meiosis completion at egg activation

    Masatoshi Hara et al.
    The kinase that controls maternal mRNA translation is regulated by phosphorylation of its activating subunit to restrict kinase activity to the developmental window between meiosis completion and early embryogenesis.

    Physical basis of large microtubule aster growth

    Keisuke Ishihara et al.
    Autocatalytic growth of a microtubule polymer network allows extremely large egg cells to self-organize and divide rapidly.

    An extrafollicular pathway for the generation of effector CD8+ T cells driven by the proinflammatory cytokine, IL-12

    Suhagi Shah et al.
    Proliferation and differentiation of CD8+ T cells into terminal effectors occurs in the marginal zone and red pulp, and is promoted by IL-12 through direct and indirect mechanisms.

    Maternally provided LSD1/KDM1A enables the maternal-to-zygotic transition and prevents defects that manifest postnatally

    Jadiel A Wasson et al.
    Epigenetic reprogramming by LSD1/KDM1A acts at fertilization in mice to enable embryogenesis and prevent behavioural abnormalities.

    The transcription factor FOXL2 mobilizes estrogen signaling to maintain the identity of ovarian granulosa cells

    Adrien Georges et al.
    FOXL2 maintenance of ovarian identity is not solely due to a simple direct repression of Sox9 but to the mobilization of estrogen signalling by FOXL2.

    Germinal center B cell development has distinctly regulated stages completed by disengagement from T cell help

    Ting-ting Zhang et al.
    CD40 signaling is necessary to generate the immediate precursors of GC B cells, transition to the BCL6hi follicular state is promoted by a regional and transient diminution of T cell help.

    Tuning of in vivo cognate B-T cell interactions by Intersectin 2 is required for effective anti-viral B cell immunity

    Marianne Burbage et al.
    Intersectin2 deficiency is associated with impaired humoral responses to viral infection and B-cell-intrisic defects in germinal centre formation, resulting from the reduced ability of intersectin2-KO B cells to establish cognate interactions with helper T cells.

    ETS family transcriptional regulators drive chromatin dynamics and malignancy in squamous cell carcinomas

    Hanseul Yang et al.
    Transcription factors of the ETS family govern a cohort of key cancer-associated regulators of malignancy in squamous cell carcinomas.

    Fibroblastic reticular cell-derived lysophosphatidic acid regulates confined intranodal T-cell motility

    Akira Takeda et al.
    A lipid mediator lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) derived from fibroblastic reticular cells regulates T-cell movement through the densely packed reticular network in lymph nodes in a manner dependent on the LPA receptor LPA2-ROCK-myosin II.

    A genome-wide resource for the analysis of protein localisation in Drosophila

    Mihail Sarov et al.
    A large-scale transgenic resource enables live imaging, subcellular localisation and interaction proteomics of specific gene products of interest at all stages of Drosophila development.
