    Nephron progenitor commitment is a stochastic process influenced by cell migration

    Kynan T Lawlor et al.
    Stochastic cell migration modulates exposure to signals that regulate commitment in the nephron progenitor niche.

    High-phytate/low-calcium diet is a risk factor for crystal nephropathies, renal phosphate wasting, and bone loss

    Ok-Hee Kim et al.
    A high-phytate-low Ca2+ diet causes crystal nephropathies, renal phosphate wasting, and bone disease in rats, whereas high Ca2+ intake ameliorates the detrimental effects of a high-phytate diet.

    ppargc1a controls nephron segmentation during zebrafish embryonic kidney ontogeny

    Joseph M Chambers et al.
    The transcriptional coactivator ppargc1a regulates the renal progenitor patterning to delineate boundary formation of differentiated segment populations during nephrogenesis.

    Hand2 inhibits kidney specification while promoting vein formation within the posterior mesoderm

    Elliot A Perens et al.
    The Hand2 transcription factor regulates the dimensions of the kidney by controlling cell fate decisions at the interface between organ fields.

    Tumor suppression in basal keratinocytes via dual non-cell-autonomous functions of a Na,K-ATPase beta subunit

    Julia Hatzold et al.
    A Na,K-ATPase beta subunit can suppress basal cell carcinogenesis either via its osmoregulatory function to avoid hypotonic stress, or by promoting epithelial polarity and adhesiveness of basal keratinocytes from the overlying outer layer.

    A chloroplast retrograde signal, 3’-phosphoadenosine 5’-phosphate, acts as a secondary messenger in abscisic acid signaling in stomatal closure and germination

    Wannarat Pornsiriwong et al.
    Molecular signals from chloroplasts can synergistically interact with the plant hormone, abscisic acid (ABA), to regulate non-canonical signaling pathways mediating fundamental cellular processes including stomatal closure, seed dormancy and germination.

    The Ormdl genes regulate the sphingolipid synthesis pathway to ensure proper myelination and neurologic function in mice

    Benjamin A Clarke et al.
    The ORMDL proteins function to restrain the de novo sphingolipid biosynthetic pathway during myelination, when there is a high demand for sphingolipids to prevent excessive accumulation of metabolic intermediates.

    MicroRNA-934 is a novel primate-specific small non-coding RNA with neurogenic function during early development

    Kanella Prodromidou et al.
    Primate-specific miR-934 mediates neurogenesis and downstream neuronal differentiation processes, modulating the expression of genes associated with the subplate, a region most prominent in primates, emerging during early cortical development.

    A new view of transcriptome complexity and regulation through the lens of local splicing variations

    Jorge Vaquero-Garcia et al.
    New methods reveal that complex local splicing variations are more prevalent in animals than previously appreciated, and demonstrate that local splicing variations are relevant for studies of development, gene regulation and neurodegenerative diseases.

    Epithelial magnesium transport by TRPM6 is essential for prenatal development and adult survival

    Vladimir Chubanov et al.
    Mice deficient in the TRPM6 channel suffer from impaired prenatal development, shortened lifespan, growth deficit and disturbed energy balance due to a defect in epithelial Mg2+ uptake, thus highlighting a pivotal role of TRPM6 in organismal Mg2+ homeostasis.
