    T-box3 is a ciliary protein and regulates stability of the Gli3 transcription factor to control digit number

    Uchenna Emechebe et al.
    The transcription and splicing factor T-box3 is present in primary cilia, regulates multiple aspects of limb development, and interacts with members of the protein complex required for the stability and processing of the Gli3 transcription factor.

    KPNB1 mediates PER/CRY nuclear translocation and circadian clock function

    Yool Lee et al.
    KPNB1 regulates rhythmic spatio-temporal nuclear import of the PER/CRY complex and is required for negative feedback repression in mammalian and fly clock function.

    A mex3 homolog is required for differentiation during planarian stem cell lineage development

    Shu Jun Zhu et al.
    The planarian mex3-1 gene is required for non-stem cell fates and suppresses a stem cell fate in differentiating cells.

    Phenotypic states become increasingly sensitive to perturbations near a bifurcation in a synthetic gene network

    Kevin Axelrod et al.
    Perturbations in the extracellular environment drive transitions from a highly stable memory state to an alternative phenotype in microorganisms.

    miR-142 regulates the tumorigenicity of human breast cancer stem cells through the canonical WNT signaling pathway

    Taichi Isobe et al.
    Insights into the roles and mechanisms of two of the miRNAs upregulated in human breast cancer stem cells in at least some breast cancers are presented.

    Cell-type heterogeneity in the early zebrafish olfactory epithelium is generated from progenitors within preplacodal ectoderm

    Raphaël Aguillon et al.
    Several neuronal subtypes found in the early zebrafish olfactory placode are not derived from the neural crest, as previously thought, but from the preplacodal ectoderm.
