    Length-dependent flagellar growth of Vibrio alginolyticus revealed by real time fluorescent imaging

    Meiting Chen et al.
    The length-dependent growth rate of bacterial flagellar filament is determined by the flagellin loading speed, loading strength and its diffusion process.

    Spatial control of translation repression and polarized growth by conserved NDR kinase Orb6 and RNA-binding protein Sts5

    Illyce Nuñez et al.
    NDR kinase Orb6 prevents RNP granule assembly and translational repression by promoting Sts5 association with 14-3-3 protein Rad24 to spatially control polarized cell growth.

    Two-signal requirement for growth-promoting function of Yap in hepatocytes

    Tian Su et al.
    The Yap pathway requires two signals to promote organ growth: a cell intrinsic Hippo signal and a signal induced by injury or inflammation.

    Prioritizing plant defence over growth through WRKY regulation facilitates infestation by non-target herbivores

    Ran Li et al.
    A chewing herbivore induced WRKY transcription factor induces jasmonate-dependent defences and supresses gibbererellin-dependent growth, the latter of which renders rice plants more susceptible to secondary infestation by a piercing-sucking herbivore.

    Growth hormone-releasing hormone disruption extends lifespan and regulates response to caloric restriction in mice

    Liou Y Sun et al.
    Mice with a mutation that disrupts the release of growth hormone show greatly increased lifespan, which can be further increased by caloric restriction.

    Dpp from the anterior stripe of cells is crucial for the growth of the Drosophila wing disc

    Shinya Matsuda, Markus Affolter
    A recent report proposing that the dpp stripe (the main source of the protein dpp) is dispensable for Drosophila wing disc growth missed the critical role on growth due to imprecise spatial removal of dpp.

    Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor neddylation is regulated by a desmosomal-COP9 (Constitutive Photomorphogenesis 9) signalosome complex

    Nicole Ann Najor et al.
    A protein interaction screen revealed desmosomes as a scaffold for the COP9 de-neddylating complex, to promote epidermal differentiation by governing the balance of Nedd8 and Ubiquitin modifications on Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor.

    Phosphorylation of iRhom2 at the plasma membrane controls mammalian TACE-dependent inflammatory and growth factor signalling

    Adam Graham Grieve et al.
    The iRhom2 protein, a catalytically inactive relative of rhomboid proteases, controls inflammation and growth factor signalling by acting as an essential multifunctional regulatory subunit of the cell surface shedding protease TACE (ADAM17).

    Filopodial dynamics and growth cone stabilization in Drosophila visual circuit development

    Mehmet Neset Özel et al.
    Long-term live imaging in intact developing Drosophila brains reveals a role for N-Cadherin-mediated fast filopodial dynamics and growth cone stabilization during neural circuit assembly.

    Combining growth-promoting genes leads to positive epistasis in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Hannes Vanhaeren et al.
    Pairwise combinations of growth-promoting genes regulating distinct cellular mechanisms lead to synergistic effects on leaf growth, and hence greatly increased leaf size.
