    PI3K-Yap activity drives cortical gyrification and hydrocephalus in mice

    Achira Roy et al.
    Embryonic PI3K-Yap activity regulates apical adhesion and proliferation of neural progenitors lining the lateral ventricular surface, to maintain the smooth, non-folded mouse brain and to prevent developmental hydrocephalus.

    HMMR acts in the PLK1-dependent spindle positioning pathway and supports neural development

    Marisa Connell et al.
    HMMR regulates spindle positioning in neural and other cell types downstream of PLK1 and subsequently affects cortical NuMA-Dynein localization.

    Analogous mechanism regulating formation of neocortical basal radial glia and cerebellar Bergmann glia

    Xin Heng et al.
    Genome-wide transcriptional profiling and genetic analyses reveal conserved mechanisms underlying the generation of neocortical basal radial glia and cerebellar Bergmann glia.

    Mouse models of human PIK3CA-related brain overgrowth have acutely treatable epilepsy

    Achira Roy et al.
    Acute one-hour treatment of Pik3ca mutant mice with a novel anti-epilepsy drug suppresses seizures despite continued developmental brain dysmorphology, promising a new therapeutic strategy for patients with intractable pediatric epilepsy.

    The tumor suppressor PTEN and the PDK1 kinase regulate formation of the columnar neural epithelium

    Joaquim Grego-Bessa et al.
    In addition to its role in regulating proliferation and cell death, the PTEN tumor suppressor regulates epithelial morphogenesis through the PDK1 kinase.
