    Integrated β-catenin, BMP, PTEN, and Notch signalling patterns the nephron

    Nils O Lindström et al.
    The patterning of the nephron is driven by a gradient in the activity of β-catenin and further defined by a network of BMP, PTEN and NOTCH signalling.

    Directional selectivity of afferent neurons in zebrafish neuromasts is regulated by Emx2 in presynaptic hair cells

    Young Rae Ji et al.
    Emx2 mediates the directional selectivity of neuromasts by regulating hair bundle orientation in hair cells, and by selecting afferent neuronal targets.

    Regulation of cell protrusions by small GTPases during fusion of the neural folds

    Ana Rolo et al.
    The completion of neural tube closure requires small GTPase-regulated membrane protrusions from non-neural ectoderm cells at the tips of the neural folds.

    NG2 glia are required for vessel network formation during embryonic development

    Shilpi Minocha et al.
    The appearance of NG2+ glial cells in the dorsal telencephalon of the embryo coincides with the establishment of the brain blood vessel network in mice.

    Angiopoietin receptor Tie2 is required for vein specification and maintenance via regulating COUP-TFII

    Man Chu et al.
    Analyses with genetically engineered mouse models in combination with biochemical approaches reveal a crucial role of the receptor tyrosine kinase Tie2 mediated signals in venogenesis via an Akt mediated regulation of COUP-TFII protein stabilization.

    Pi-Pi contacts are an overlooked protein feature relevant to phase separation

    Robert McCoy Vernon et al.
    Statistics on the frequencies of pi interactions in folded protein structures enable successful prediction of intrinsically disordered protein phase separation, with clear implications for a physical understanding of cellular organization.

    Nephron progenitor commitment is a stochastic process influenced by cell migration

    Kynan T Lawlor et al.
    Stochastic cell migration modulates exposure to signals that regulate commitment in the nephron progenitor niche.

    Release and spread of Wingless is required to pattern the proximo-distal axis of Drosophila renal tubules

    Robin Beaven, Barry Denholm
    In contrast to growing evidence that juxtracrine signalling accounts for Wnt/Wingless patterning function, Wingless behaves as a released signal in Drosophila renal tubule development, being secreted from the midgut to spread and pattern the proximal tubule.

    Discovery of novel determinants of endothelial lineage using chimeric heterokaryons

    Wing Tak Wong et al.
    Bioinformatic analysis of gene expression in chimeric heterokaryons can identify novel regulators of cell lineage.

    Generation of an expandable intermediate mesoderm restricted progenitor cell line from human pluripotent stem cells

    Nathan Kumar et al.
    An expandable cell population derived from human pluripotent stem cells exhibits properties of mesoderm and is restricted to differentiate into derivatives of intermediate mesoderm.
