    Thyroid hormone regulates distinct paths to maturation in pigment cell lineages

    Lauren M Saunders et al.
    Single-cell transcriptomics combined with genetic analyses identify post-embryonic neural crest subpopulations and thyroid hormone dependencies in zebrafish adult pigment pattern development.

    Long-distance communication by specialized cellular projections during pigment pattern development and evolution

    Dae Seok Eom et al.
    Cells of the xanthophore lineage form projections that allow them to communicate with other pigment cells during adult pigment pattern formation in zebrafish, but not in the closely-related pearl danio.

    Gap junctions composed of connexins 41.8 and 39.4 are essential for colour pattern formation in zebrafish

    Uwe Irion et al.
    Melanophores and xanthophores interact via heteromeric gap junctions composed of Connexin 41.8 and Connexin 39.4 to establish the adult pigment pattern in zebrafish.

    Cell-type heterogeneity in the early zebrafish olfactory epithelium is generated from progenitors within preplacodal ectoderm

    Raphaël Aguillon et al.
    Several neuronal subtypes found in the early zebrafish olfactory placode are not derived from the neural crest, as previously thought, but from the preplacodal ectoderm.

    Revisiting the role of Dcc in visual system development with a novel eye clearing method

    Robin J Vigouroux et al.
    A new eye-specific Dcc mutant combined with an improved clearing protocol for the eye and brain (EyeDISCO) reveals the requirement of the receptor Dcc for retinal development and maintenance.

    ErbB expressing Schwann cells control lateral line progenitor cells via non-cell-autonomous regulation of Wnt/β-catenin

    Mark E Lush, Tatjana Piotrowski
    Schwann cell induced quiescence of mechanosensory progenitor cells is mediated by inhibition of Wnt/β-catenin signaling.

    Phenotypic plasticity as a mechanism of cave colonization and adaptation

    Helena Bilandžija et al.
    Astyanax mexicanus surface-dwelling fish exposed to complete darkness develop many traits resembling cavefish adaptations by phenotypic plasticity in a single generation.

    Competition between kinesin-1 and myosin-V defines Drosophila posterior determination

    Wen Lu et al.
    Posterior determination of Drosophila oocyte is defined by competition between kinesin-1 removing posterior determinants from the cortex and myosin-V anchoring them.

    Tip cell-specific requirement for an atypical Gpr124- and Reck-dependent Wnt/β-catenin pathway during brain angiogenesis

    Benoit Vanhollebeke et al.
    The membrane proteins Reck and Gpr124 are integral components of a novel Wnt7a/Wnt7b-specific signaling complex, and there is a distinctive requirement for Wnt/β-catenin signaling in tip cells during angiogenesis in the central nervous system.
