    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.

    Selective activation of FZD7 promotes mesendodermal differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells

    Diana Gumber et al.
    Selective activation of FZD7 signaling with an engineered WNT mimetic promotes early developmental programs, including endodermal lineage specification, in human pluripotent stem cells.

    Optogenetic investigation of BMP target gene expression diversity

    Katherine W Rogers et al.
    Optogenetic manipulation of BMP signaling indicates that diversity in BMP-dependent gene expression is not well explained by differential responses to BMP, and combinatorial signaling is a major driver of diversity.

    High-resolution transcriptional and morphogenetic profiling of cells from micropatterned human ESC gastruloid cultures

    Kyaw Thu Minn et al.
    Micropatterned differentiation of human ESCs generates gastrulation cell types – germ layers, extraembryonic, and primordial germ cells with primate characteristics – that show conserved sorting behaviors when dissociated and reseeded as single-cell mixture.

    Wnt3 distribution in the zebrafish brain is determined by expression, diffusion and multiple molecular interactions

    Sapthaswaran Veerapathiran et al.
    Wnt3 accomplishes long-range distribution by extracellular diffusion controlled by expression, tissue morphology, interactions with heparan sulfate proteoglycans, and co-receptor-mediated receptor binding to regulate brain development in zebrafish embryos.

    Rho1 activation recapitulates early gastrulation events in the ventral, but not dorsal, epithelium of Drosophila embryos

    Ashley Rich et al.
    Spatially and temporally patterned activation of the small GTPase Rho1 indicates that ventral-specific factors contribute to cell- and tissue-level behaviors during ventral furrow formation, the first step in Drosophila gastrulation.
