    A model symbiosis reveals a role for sheathed-flagellum rotation in the release of immunogenic lipopolysaccharide

    Caitlin A Brennan et al.
    Both beneficial and pathogenic bacteria can use their sheathed flagella during host colonization as a novel toxin-/signal-delivery mechanism.

    The GTPase IFT27 is involved in both anterograde and retrograde intraflagellar transport

    Diego Huet et al.
    A small GTPase within the flagellum can participate in the control of transport from the base to the tip of the flagellum, and back again.

    Bacterial flagella grow through an injection-diffusion mechanism

    Thibaud T Renault et al.
    Single cell, fluorescent microscopy and mathematical modeling reveal how bacterial flagella dynamically assemble outside the cell.

    Basalin is an evolutionarily unconstrained protein revealed via a conserved role in flagellum basal plate function

    Samuel Dean et al.
    Basalins are intrinsically disordered proteins with astonishingly high-sequence divergence that are essential for building the transition zone basal plate and for proper central pair nucleation.

    Evolutionary shifts in taste coding in the fruit pest Drosophila suzukii

    Hany KM Dweck et al.
    The evolutionary transition of the agricultural pest Drosophila suzukii to egg laying on ripe fruits was paralleled with several gustatory innovations.

    The flagellar motor of Vibrio alginolyticus undergoes major structural remodeling during rotational switching

    Brittany L Carroll et al.
    In situ structures of the flagellar motors genetically docked in CCW and CW rotational states reveal major rearrangement that facilitates rotational switch in Vibrio alginolyticus..

    Dynamics of the IFT machinery at the ciliary tip

    Alexander Chien et al.
    During intraflagellar transport (IFT), kinesin-II dissociates from IFT trains at the flagellar tip and its diffusion in flagella serves as a negative feedback mechanism that facilitates flagellar length control in Chlamydomonas.

    An asymmetric sheath controls flagellar supercoiling and motility in the leptospira spirochete

    Kimberley H Gibson et al.
    The corkscrew-like motility of Spirochete bacteria is enabled by a unique, asymmetrically constructed flagellum that wraps around the cell body within the periplasm.

    Evolutionary transcriptomics implicates HAND2 in the origins of implantation and regulation of gestation length

    Mirna Marinić et al.
    The transcription factor HAND2 evolved uterine expression during the origins of pregnancy and may be important for maternal-fetal immune signaling and parturition.

    Placenta: When the past informs our future

    Abigail LaBella
    Comparing the genes expressed at the maternal-fetal interface in different species helps to pinpoint those that contribute to a healthy pregnancy by regulating the activity of the immune system.
