    Modelling the climatic suitability of Chagas disease vectors on a global scale

    Fanny E Eberhard et al.
    The global ensemble forecasting niche modelling of 11 vector competent triatomine species revealed climatic suitable regions outside their native distribution including the cosmopolitan vector Triatoma rubrofasciata.

    Structural reorganization of the chromatin remodeling enzyme Chd1 upon engagement with nucleosomes

    Ramasubramanian Sundaramoorthy et al.
    Structural models of the chromatin remodeling enzyme Chd1 in solution and when bound to chromatin indicate that conformational changes to both the enzyme and the nucleosome occur upon nucleotide dependent engagement.

    Vascular remodeling is governed by a VEGFR3-dependent fluid shear stress set point

    Nicolas Baeyens et al.
    Flow-dependent remodeling of blood vessels is critical for normal physiology and for recovery from arterial blockage in disease; understanding its cellular mechanisms may lead to the development of treatments for patients that are deficient in this process following myocardial infarction or other vascular diseases.

    Differential expression of Lutheran/BCAM regulates biliary tissue remodeling in ductular reaction during liver regeneration

    Yasushi Miura et al.
    Lutheran is a novel marker for classification of bile duct remodeling in distinct liver injury, and an interesting functional molecule for investigating the nature of liver stem/progenitor cells during regeneration.

    Lotka-Volterra pairwise modeling fails to capture diverse pairwise microbial interactions

    Babak Momeni et al.
    With mathematical modeling being an important source of insight for microbial communities, we may need to move beyond commonly-used pairwise models that do not capture microbial interactions.

    Heterogeneity and stochastic growth regulation of biliary epithelial cells dictate dynamic epithelial tissue remodeling

    Kenji Kamimoto et al.
    Clonal tracing in vivo and quantitative modeling in silico reveal a unique mode of tissue growth and structural remodeling of the biliary system, providing an insight into the cellular basis for robust liver regeneration.

    Stepwise nucleosome translocation by RSC remodeling complexes

    Bryan T Harada et al.
    Single molecule FRET reveals that the SWI/SNF-family remodeling enzyme RSC translocates nucleosomes along the DNA in steps of ~1-2 base pairs in size.

    CHARGE syndrome modeling using patient-iPSCs reveals defective migration of neural crest cells harboring CHD7 mutations

    Hironobu Okuno et al.
    Neural crest cells differentiated from patient-derived cells with mutations in the chromatin remodeler CHD7 show defective delamination, migration and motility in vitro, and defective migration in chick embryos.

    Cell-wall remodeling drives engulfment during Bacillus subtilis sporulation

    Nikola Ojkic et al.
    Imaging experiments and simulations reveal that the biophysical mechanism for force generation needed to engulf a forespore is based on coordinated cell wall synthesis and degradation.
