    The structure and organization of lanceolate mechanosensory complexes at mouse hair follicles

    Lishi Li, David D Ginty
    Close examination of lanceolate mechanosensory complexes has revealed clues about the ways that sensory nerves detect the movement of hairs and shown than terminal Schwann cells are needed to maintain and regenerate these intricate structures.

    Variable opportunities for outcrossing result in hotspots of novel genetic variation in a pathogen metapopulation

    Anna-Liisa Laine et al.
    In natural pathogen populations opportunities for sexual outcrossing vary, leading to spatial variation in genetic diversity and between-season survival.

    Wnt/β-catenin signaling is an evolutionarily conserved determinant of chordate dorsal organizer

    Iryna Kozmikova, Zbynek Kozmik
    Wnt/beta-catenin signaling is essential for the specification of dorsal cell fate in amphioxus, suggesting a common evolutionary origin for the formation of the dorsal organizer in chordates.

    Hair follicle epidermal stem cells define a niche for tactile sensation

    Chun-Chun Cheng et al.
    Heterogeneous epidermal stem cells define a niche for tactile sensation via providing a unique ECM and tissue architecture for nerves, revealing their new functions in coordinated sensory organ formation.

    Keratinocytes can modulate and directly initiate nociceptive responses

    Kyle M Baumbauer et al.
    Optogenetics reveals that keratinocytes can evoke action potential firing in several types of cutaneous sensory afferents, including those that transmit thermal, mechanical and pain stimuli.

    Extrinsic and intrinsic signals converge on the Runx1/CBFβ transcription factor for nonpeptidergic nociceptor maturation

    Siyi Huang et al.
    The extrinsic cue NGF and the intrinsic signal Islet1 converge at the level of the Runx1/CBFβ transcription factor complex formation to promote differentiation of a major nociceptor subtype.

    Structural color in Junonia butterflies evolves by tuning scale lamina thickness

    Rachel C Thayer et al.
    Artificial selection on wing color and CRISPR/Cas9 knockout of the optix gene both alter scale lamina thickness in Junonia coenia, which shifts structural color wavelength and mimics macroevolutionary butterfly diversity.

    An unexpected noncarpellate epigynous flower from the Jurassic of China

    Qiang Fu et al.
    Flowers did bloom in the Early Jurassic.

    Computation identifies structural features that govern neuronal firing properties in slowly adapting touch receptors

    Daine R Lesniak et al.
    Computer simulations show that the firing patterns of branched touch receptors can be set in part by the organization of their sensory endings in the skin.

    Logics and properties of a genetic regulatory program that drives embryonic muscle development in an echinoderm

    Carmen Andrikou et al.
    A gene regulatory network model provides a simplified explanation of the molecular interactions that orchestrate muscle development in the sea urchin embryo.
