    Striking parallels between dorsoventral patterning in Drosophila and Gryllus reveal a complex evolutionary history behind a model gene regulatory network

    Matthias Pechmann et al.
    Crucial functions of Toll signalling during dorsoventral axis formation might have evolved convergently in flies and crickets.

    The recycling endosome protein Rab25 coordinates collective cell movements in the zebrafish surface epithelium

    Patrick Morley Willoughby et al.
    Rab25a and Rab25b mutant embryos exhibit epithelial spreading delays during morphogenesis and are characterized by cytokinesis defects leading to cell fusions, heterogeneous epithelial cell sizes, and reduced cortical actomyosin contractility.

    From local resynchronization to global pattern recovery in the zebrafish segmentation clock

    Koichiro Uriu et al.
    Theory explains how transport of gene expression vortices by cell advection may cause intermingled defective and normal segments along the body axis during resynchronization experiments in the zebrafish segmentation clock.

    Physically asymmetric division of the C. elegans zygote ensures invariably successful embryogenesis

    Radek Jankele et al.
    Systematic analysis of C. elegans zygotes manipulated to divide equally demonstrates that daughter cell size asymmetry is critical for proper cell cycle timing, positioning, and fates during subsequent embryogenesis.

    NAD+ enhances ribitol and ribose rescue of α-dystroglycan functional glycosylation in human FKRP-mutant myotubes

    Carolina Ortiz-Cordero et al.
    The combined use of NAD+ with ribitol or ribose potentiates the rescue of α-dystroglycan functional glycosylation in FKRP-mutant patient-specific iPSC-derived myotubes, representing potential novel treatments for FKRP muscular dystrophies.

    A β-catenin-driven switch in TCF/LEF transcription factor binding to DNA target sites promotes commitment of mammalian nephron progenitor cells

    Qiuyu Guo et al.
    β-Catenin-mediated expansion of nephron progenitors is independent of direct β-catenin/chromatin engagement, while progenitor induction proceeds with a β-catenin-driven switch of repressive TCFL1/TCFL2 to activating TCF7/LEF1 factors on transcriptionally poised enhancers.

    A flagellate-to-amoeboid switch in the closest living relatives of animals

    Thibaut Brunet et al.
    The closest living relatives of animals, the choanoflagellates, switch from a flagellate to an amoeboid phenotype under confinement.

    Visualizing the metazoan proliferation-quiescence decision in vivo

    Rebecca C Adikes et al.
    During organismal development, CDK activity at mitotic exit is predictive of future cell behavior, indicating whether a cell will divide again or enter a quiescent state.

    Surprising phenotypic diversity of cancer-associated mutations of Gly 34 in the histone H3 tail

    Brandon R Lowe et al.
    H3-G34R, V, and W oncohistonesin fission yeast cause differential K36 modification, DNA damage sensitivity and genome stability outcomes, highlighting the need for a thorough evaluation of distinct mutations.

    Kinetic sculpting of the seven stripes of the Drosophila even-skipped gene

    Augusto Berrocal et al.
    Live quantitative monitoring of transcriptional bursting reveals that enhancers responding to different regulators use the same kinetic strategy to produce a complex composite pattern of developmental expression.
