Melanin staining for micro-CT imaging, using a novel application of ionic silver deposition, enables qualitative and quantitative 3D analysis of zebrafish pigmentation and reveals subtle phenotypes missed by light microscopy.
Cell assemblies can use environmental cues created by their own respiration, such as oxygen gradients, to collectively guide themselves to more favorable locations in a remarkably robust and long-lasting way.
Filopodia formation requires recruitment and activation of myosin through generation of parallel, bundled actin filaments by VASP polymerase, revealing coupling between motor activation and organization of a local actin network.
A synthesis of recent hybridization literature reveals emerging patterns in the evolution of genomes after hybridization, processes proposed to explain those patterns, and important open questions to direct future hybrid genomics research.
The serine protease Matriptase orchestrates simultaneous epithelial cell motility and inflammation in pathological states through respective activation of the MAPK pathway and generation of hydrogen peroxide.
