    Spinal cord precursors utilize neural crest cell mechanisms to generate hybrid peripheral myelinating glia

    Laura Fontenas, Sarah Kucenas
    Motor exit point (MEP) glia utilize mechanisms most commonly attributed to neural crest cells for their development from spinal cord precursors.

    Hemodynamic-mediated endocardial signaling controls in vivo myocardial reprogramming

    Manuel Gálvez-Santisteban et al.
    The heart is able to sense and adaptively respond to environmental changes due to cardiac injury through flow-mediated mechanisms that regulate cardiomyocyte reprogramming and regeneration.

    Single-molecule functional anatomy of endogenous HER2-HER3 heterodimers

    Byoungsan Choi et al.
    Single-molecule immunoprecipitation method reveals that the high catalytic rate and multi-tasking capability make a concerted contribution to the strong signaling potency of the HER2-HER3 heterodimers.

    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.

    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.

    Metabolic modulation regulates cardiac wall morphogenesis in zebrafish

    Ryuichi Fukuda et al.
    3D single cell imaging and genetic analyses reveal a new role of cardiac metabolism in cardiac wall morphogenesis.

    Schwann cells, but not Oligodendrocytes, Depend Strictly on Dynamin 2 Function

    Daniel Gerber et al.
    In the peripheral nervous system, the large GTPase dynamin 2 is required for Schwann cell survival, developmental radial sorting of axons, myelination, and myelin maintenance.

    Lack of activity of recombinant HIF prolyl hydroxylases (PHDs) on reported non-HIF substrates

    Matthew E Cockman et al.
    Assays using recombinant HIF prolyl hydroxylases did not support hydroxylation of more than 20 reported non-HIF substrates under conditions where robust HIF hydroxylation was observed.

    A conserved morphogenetic mechanism for epidermal ensheathment of nociceptive sensory neurites

    Nan Jiang et al.
    Epidermal cells in vertebrates and invertebrates ensheath portions of somatosensory neurons via a conserved morphogenetic mechanism, and this ensheathment regulates morphogenesis and function of Drosophila nociceptive neurons.
