    Co-expression of Foxa.a, Foxd and Fgf9/16/20 defines a transient mesendoderm regulatory state in ascidian embryos

    Clare Hudson et al.
    Ascidian mesendoderm is a transient regulatory state upstream of mesoderm and endoderm gene regulatory networks and required for the initiation of both.

    Vg1-Nodal heterodimers are the endogenous inducers of mesendoderm

    Tessa G Montague, Alexander F Schier
    Nodal is assumed to be the sole inducer of mesendoderm, but the related signal Vg1 is as essential as Nodal in this process.

    Quantitative imaging reveals real-time Pou5f3–Nanog complexes driving dorsoventral mesendoderm patterning in zebrafish

    Mireia Perez-Camps et al.
    Different combinations of the transcription factors Pou5f3, Nanog and Sox32 form complexes to drive dorsoventral mesendoderm patterning in zebrafish.

    Pitx2c orchestrates embryonic axis extension via mesendodermal cell migration

    Michelle M Collins et al.
    Expression of Pitx2c at the onset of gastrulation drives convergence and extension movements in the zebrafish embryo by promoting downstream pathways affecting chemokine signaling, integrin-ECM interactions, and planar cell polarity components.

    Gdf3 is required for robust Nodal signaling during germ layer formation and left-right patterning

    Jose L Pelliccia et al.
    Genetic analyses demonstrate that Gdf3/Vg1 is a maternal effect gene required for robust Nodal signaling during different phases of embryogenesis including germ-layer formation, Kupffer's vesicle morphogenesis, and left-right patterning.

    The Apelin receptor enhances Nodal/TGFβ signaling to ensure proper cardiac development

    Ashish R Deshwar et al.
    The Apelin receptor acts as a rheostat to ensure that the proper levels of Nodal signaling are achieved for proper cell fate specification at the onset of gastrulation, in particular for cardiac progenitor development.

    Nodal patterning without Lefty inhibitory feedback is functional but fragile

    Katherine W Rogers et al.
    Lefty-mediated feedback inhibition of Nodal signaling mitigates signaling perturbations, but is dispensable for development.

    Toddler signaling regulates mesodermal cell migration downstream of Nodal signaling

    Megan L Norris et al.
    Elucidation of direct and indirect roles of GPCR signaling during gastrulation.

    Maternal Gdf3 is an obligatory cofactor in Nodal signaling for embryonic axis formation in zebrafish

    Brent W Bisgrove et al.
    Maternal Gdf3 and Nodal are interdependent obligatory cofactors in the fundamental patterning of the vertebrate embryonic axis of zebrafish.

    A lncRNA fine tunes the dynamics of a cell state transition involving Lin28, let-7 and de novo DNA methylation

    Meng Amy Li et al.
    A novel lncRNA (Ephemeron) is connected to known post-transcriptional and epigenetic regulators as part of an integrated machinery, which controls the timely exit from the naïve state of mouse embryonic stem cells.
