    The polarity protein Baz forms a platform for the centrosome orientation during asymmetric stem cell division in the Drosophila male germline

    Mayu Inaba et al.
    The stem cell orientation checkpoint senses the correct orientation of centrosomes via their interactions with a protein called Bazooka.

    C. elegans GLP-1/Notch activates transcription in a probability gradient across the germline stem cell pool

    ChangHwan Lee et al.
    Analyzing the readout of Notch signaling with single RNA precision reveals that active transcription sites are the most accurate measure of Notch-dependent transcriptional activation.

    Cystic proliferation of germline stem cells is necessary to reproductive success and normal mating behavior in medaka

    Luisa F Arias Padilla et al.
    In medaka fish, the reduction of cystic proliferation of germ stem cells declines gametogenesis, reproduction success, and male sexual behavior, with a decrease of mating vigor.

    Reactivation of RNA metabolism underlies somatic restoration after adult reproductive diapause in C. elegans

    Nikolay Burnaevskiy et al.
    Morphological and functional rejuvenation upon exit from adult reproductive diapause in C. elegans is independent of germline signaling, but instead involves somatic nucleolar activation and expansion of the RNA pool.

    p53 activity is selectively licensed in the Drosophila stem cell compartment

    Annika Wylie et al.
    Ancient features of the p53 regulatory network are coupled to the stem cell compartment in normal and pathologic contexts.

    Transcriptional signatures of somatic neoblasts and germline cells in Macrostomum lignano

    Magda Grudniewska et al.
    De novo transcriptome assembly and comprehensive characterization of gene expression in proliferating cells of regeneration-capable flatworm Macrostomum lignano advance this organism as a powerful model for stem cell research.

    Ovaries absent links dLsd1 to HP1a for local H3K4 demethylation required for heterochromatic gene silencing

    Fu Yang et al.
    A Drosophila fertility gene is identified that acts as a linker between HP1a and local H3K4 demethylation during HP1a-mediated gene silencing that is required for ovary development and transposon silencing..

    Stress resets ancestral heritable small RNA responses

    Leah Houri-Zeevi et al.
    Various types of stress reset heritable small RNA responses through the function of the p38 MAPK pathway, the transcription factor SKN-1/Nrf2, and the MET-2/SETDB1 putative histone methyltransferase.

    A widely employed germ cell marker is an ancient disordered protein with reproductive functions in diverse eukaryotes

    Michelle A Carmell et al.
    GCNA proteins comprise a previously unnoticed family of proteins that has been enriched in cells carrying a heritable genome since the invention of sexual reproduction in eukaryotes, and has had reproductive function for at least 600 million years.

    Differentiating Drosophila female germ cells initiate Polycomb silencing by regulating PRC2-interacting proteins

    Steven Z DeLuca et al.
    Characterization of Drosophila female germ cell differentiation shows that nurse cells initiate Polycomb silencing by regulating Pcl and Scm levels to alter the biochemical properties of the PRC2 H3K27 methylase.
